SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – Former Upland City Manager Robin Dale Quincey, 52, of Upland, was arrested today for criminal charges filed by the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office.
Quincey was taken into custody without incident by investigators from the District Attorney's Bureau of Investigation and transported to the West Valley Detention Center, where he was booked on an arrest warrant, which included several felony charges.
The San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office filed felony charges, which include the unlawful misappropriation of public money, gaining personal benefit from an official contract, and giving false testimony under oath. The amount of loss to the City of Upland is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“I made a commitment to the citizens of this county to battle public corruption, and we are doing just that along with the support of our federal partners,” said District Attorney Michael Ramos. “We will continue to work together to combat this misuse of public trust.”
The investigation, which led to the arrest, was initiated by the Inland Regional Corruption Task Force, which includes the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office.
The arrest is part of an ongoing corruption investigation involving former Upland City officials, including former Upland Mayor John Pomierski, who pled guilty to a federal bribery charge in April 2012. Pomierski was sentenced earlier this month to two years in federal prison.
