PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say a former Quartzsite police evidence technician has been indicted for allegedly stealing money she was responsible for safeguarding as evidence.
The Arizona Attorney General's Office says 46-year-old Christy Conley also is accused of lighting a fire inside of the evidence room in an attempt to cover her tracks.
Conley allegedly stole about $20,000 from the Quartzsite Police Department's evidence safe including $13,000 that belonged to a deceased man's estate.
Prosecutors say the remaining $7,000 was evidence impounded in drug trafficking cases.
