BENTON, Ill. (AP) — A Franklin County government employee is accused of stealing while on the job.

Forty-six-year-old Kindra Eickelman of Benton is charged with theft and official misconduct in the court clerk’s office.

State’s Attorney Evan Owens says the Franklin County Sheriff told him Thursday that while resigning, Eickelman admitted to a co-worker she had been stealing at work.

It’s not immediately clear how much Eickelman is alleged to have stolen.
Eickelman worked for the Franklin County court clerk’s office for three years.
