“Former FBI Technican Sentenced; She Stole Almost $80,000
A former employee at an Indiana FBI office will spend 15 months in prison after pleading guilty for lying about stealing nearly $80,000.
Melissa L. Sims worked as an evidence control technician in the Merrillvile office from 1996 through September 2008. According to her plea agreement, Sims admitted to stealing or embezzling evidence she was supposed to have disposed of properly. She admitted that at least 10 times she signed documents saying that cash ranging from $2 to $2,790 had been returned, when she actually had kept it.
She also admitted that she had tampered with a witness in the case.
As part of the plea, she was ordered to repay $77,882 in restitution.”
