BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A woman hired as an ATM service technician has been indicted for stealing $47,000 from ATMs over a seven month period.

A federal jury indicted Kelly Fuchs, a 26-year-old from Fultondale, with eight counts of bank larceny on Thursday, April 25. Fuchs accused of stealing thousands of dollars from seven ATMs in the greater Birmingham area between July 2012 and February 2013.

During that time, Fuchs was working for the Loomis armored car service as an ATM technician.

"When people are hired into positions of trust and abuse that position to steal from our financial institutions, it undermines our country's financial system," U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance said in a release.

"Criminals who do this can expect to be punished with the full force of the law," she added.

If convicted, Fuchs could face 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

According to the indictment, these are the ATM locations and the amount taken:

-Children's of Alabama, $6,000

-Children's of Alabama, $5,000;

-Montclair Road, Birmingham, $10,000

-Medical Center East, $4,000

-Culver Road, Mountain Brook, $10,000

-Odum Road, Gardendale, $6,000

-Martin Street, Pell City, $2,000

-Ashville Road, Leeds, $4,000

The U.S. Secret Service and Birmingham police investigated the case.
