(KMOV) -- The Board of Aldermen want answers after St. Louis Park Department employees embezzled nearly a half million dollars and did not get caught for more than seven years.

The Board Parks Committee held a hearing Wednesday afternoon to get answers from the parks department commissioner and comptroller.
 
The department’s former deputy commissioner and former park ranger used inflated invoices to steal almost $500,000.
 
They were caught early in 2013.  Don Stritzel, 43, and Joseph Cacca, 58, will be sentenced December 12.
