Former Ohio State adviser arrested for theft

A former Ohio State faculty member was arrested Monday for charging about $3,000 to a student organization’s credit card for personal reasons.
Brett Mayo, a former Students for Recycling adviser and former associate director of Energy Management and Sustainability for the OSU Office of Student Life, was charged with using an emergency credit card for personal expenses, a first-degree misdemeanor, according to an OSU Police report. Mayo was issued a summons on May 18.
According to a warrant issued Jan. 11, 2011, Mayo said the credit card was used to cover bills and gifts purchased by his wife for the holidays.
Items seized in the warrant included an Apple iPad, golf clubs and paintball equipment.
According to a Jan. 6, 2011, University Police report, Joanna Podrasky, former president of Students for Recycling, reported $2,900.55 missing from the organization’s account.
An OSU employee beginning in 1999, Mayo went on paid administrative leave beginning Jan. 7, 2011, and has not been an employee of the university since.
Mayo did not immediately return a call for comment Monday afternoon.
