Two Relay for Life volunteers are accused of embezzling money by the American Cancer Society.Search warrants obtained by Eyewitness News show a regional executive coordinator with the ACS filed a complaint with the Wendell Police Department about David Mangum and Dianna Scoggins.

The two are the co-chairpersons of the East Wake Relay for Life, and they had not been criminally charged as of Wednesday morning.

The warrant says the Cancer Society became suspicious of the pair when they turned in invoices for items and services they wanted to be reimbursed for. In one case, the invoice was allegedly counterfeit and the business does not exist.

Officers searched the couple's home on Fowlkes Street in Wendell and seized computers and electronic records. The investigation continues.
