BENTON, Ill. (AP) - A three-year employee of Franklin County in southern Illinois is accused of stealing while on the job.

Forty-six-year-old Kindra Eickelman of Benton is charged in Franklin County 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.

A telephone call Friday to a home listing for Eickelman triggered an automated message that the line was no longer in service. Online court records don't show whether Eickelman has an attorney.
