An Internal Revenue Service employee has been indicted for embezzling nearly $4,000 in taxpayer payments to the IRS.

On October 5, 2010, in Ohio, Vonda Edmonds was indicted on one count of embezzlement and theft. Beginning on or about Sept. 27, 2005, and continuing thereafter until on or about Oct. 27, 2005, in the Southern District of Ohio, Edmonds, an IRS employee, embezzled taxpayers' payments to the IRS in various amounts which she "kited" through 50 or more transactions over approximately one month until a loss in the amount of $3,915.04 was realized, according to the indictment.

The funds, to which Edmonds was not lawfully entitled, were allegedly converted to her own use, according to prosecutors.
