Federal documents unsealed Monday show shed new light onto the investigation of former Buncombe County manager Wanda Greene.

Search and seizure warrants include accusations of fraud -- and nearly $42,000 in gift cards unaccounted for. Warrants state those gift cards were for various retailers, including Office Depot, Target and Sam's Club, over a three-year period.

According to the documents, county attorney Michael Frue reached out to federal and state officials in July about inappropriate financial transactions that were made on procurement cards and requested an investigation. Those cards were assigned to administrative assistants to Greene.

One of the purchases was for an iPhone that was not registered property of the county. There were another 30 payments made to a Verizon wireless account.

The documents also detail $1300 in purchases made by Greene for decorative items which were to be for her office. However, documents show county employees never saw the items, which included a wall hanging and twin-size bed quilts.

The items, according to the documents, were shipped to Greene's home in Arden.

Greene's attorney had no comment about the unsealed search warrants.

No charges have been filed against Greene.
