La. Woman Accused Of Stealing Tax Payment

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A former temporary employee of the
Louisiana Department of Revenue has been arrested on suspicion of stealing a money order that a taxpayer submitted to pay for his state income taxes.
Police arrested Carol Ann Wilson, of Baton Rouge, last Friday on a felony theft charge.
Wilson was hired by a staffing agency to work in a revenue processing center for the department.
In September, a taxpayer complained that a money order he submitted to pay for his 2009 income taxes wasn't credited to his account. Wilson allegedly cashed it a local business.
Barry Kelly, director of the department's criminal investigation division, said Wednesday that investigators don't have any indication that other tax payments were stolen by Wilson.
