Former Russellville city employee indicted on theft charges

Posted: Updated:

A former Russellville city employee has been indicted on theft of property charges.

Ladonna Hitt Montgomery is accused of taking more than $25,000 dollars from the city's municipal court system.

The ABI launched an investigation against Montgomery last May, after the city noticed a discrepancy in financial records.

According to investigators Montgomery took cash payments from inmates made to pay fines and she would change court documents to cover her tracks.

Montgomery turned herself in last night and is out on a $5,000 bond.

If convicted she could face up to 20 years in jail. An arraignment date has not yet been set.
