According to reports, the former chair of the Engineering department at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was charged with two felony counts of theft for allegedly stealing $185,000 in research grant funds.

District Attorney Larry Krasner issued a statement on the matter, saying “After a comprehensive investigation by our office’s Economic Crimes Unit, Mr. Nwankpa will have his day in court and will have to answer for his crimes. I’d like to thank Drexel University and the Drexel University Police Department for their work throughout this investigation.” Nwankpa was charged with one count of theft by unlawful taking and theft by deception.
