Police Ask for Public’s Help

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating 46-year-old Donna Joe Goodenough who is wanted for embezzling nearly $225,000.00 from a local community service organization (Options in Supported Living). This organization provides support to people with disabilities so they can live in their own homes.

Goodenough was employed by Options in Supported Living as their Office Manager. Between January 2007 and May 2008, Goodenough forged and passed approximately 100 fraudulent checks against the company. Additionally, suspect Goodenough made several unauthorized purchases on a company credit card.

Anyone with information on suspect Goodenough’s whereabouts is urged to contact Detective Claressa Wilson at (916) 808-0537.
