Prince William police generic

The former president of the Dumfries Triangle Volunteer Fire Department faces a Sept. 9 court date on charges she embezzled more than $373,000 from the department over three years.

The investigation began last year after the department reported missing funds to the police.  

The investigation revealed that between April 2016 and July 2019, then-president Virginia Hoskings allegedly embezzled the money and used it for personal gain, said Prince William County police 1st Sgt. Jonathan Perok. She is no longer with the fire department.

Hoskings, 63, of Fredericksburg was arrested in Spotsylvania County on June 23 and charged with two counts of felony embezzlement, Perok said. She faces a Sept. 9 court date.

Joseph George for Neabsco District - Dumbass! they cost millions of dollars which volunteer fire department president stole from.

It’s good to see that “NOVA1” is not smart enough to follow a simple message chain, which is probably a good reason to mask their identity, so their family (hopefully they don’t procreate), friends (what few of them there are left), and loved ones (YEAH RIGHT) don’t know NOVA1’s level of “intelligence”.

NOVA1

You must be the smart one "Joseph George for Neabsco District" (YEAH RIGHT). Good thing you lost (LOSER!!!) election for school board seat!

Absolutely, I’ve got no shame in anything I’ve attempted and not afraid of failure. You’re so afraid, you’re hiding behind an alias. It’s easy to insult when you’re in hiding. Enjoy feeding your grandma’s cats, since that’s the most affection you receive daily. 😘😸

There must be something in Dumfries water that causes corruption.

There must be something in your brain that causes you to always say negative things. You are ignorant to true facts. Oh, you support the anti-American POTUS and now I know why you are like this. I bet your own family hates you and your racism. Move to another state since you hate Virginia so much and take a couple of your other negative folks with you.

A little wound up Derek? Go for a long walk along the river this evening (after it cools down a bit, of coarse) and chill out.

That guy derek005 has so much hate in his heart, he definitely was raised by a racist Mother and racist Grandmother. Pretty sad what a loser he became.

This is not the first time, this happens when County hands over taxpayers money to private companies with no accountability. Fire stations and all equipment (Fire trucks etc.) paid by taxpayers but owned by private companies.

school

Wrong. Some of the volunteer fire departments have bingo programs that bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Any equipment paid for with levy money is assigned to the stations and used by volunteer and career personnel. All FDs are regularly audited by the county. Nice try spreading falsehoods though!

NOVA1

Bingo money? Seriously? Does your bingo money pays to rebuild fire stations? Pays millions of dollars to purchase fire trucks? I don’t think so! It’s 100% true volunteers own equipment that’s paid by taxpayers!

Joseph George

Yeah, because each station orders new trucks every year or has to rebuild their stations every year. Idiot. 🤦🏽‍♂️

school

It’s also true that they do a service for free that some career personnel are making $150k+ to do. Look up the top salaries in county government and see what department they are going to. The volunteer system saves us millions a year and generates revenue through EMS transports. Get over yourself!

NOVA1

All volunteer fire companies in Prince William County get their funding from fire levy which is paid by Prince William County taxpayers which pays for fire stations mortgage, maintenance and all equipment.

Embezzling from the fire dept is about as low as you can go. Surprised that they still have her on their web page right next to the "Fill these boot" icon asking for money?
