Ex-Mercer sheriff’s worker pays back stolen funds

PRINCETON (AP) — A former Mercer County Sheriff’s Department employee has paid back more than $14,000 that she admitted taking from the agency.

Fifty-three-year-old Charlotte Harvey of Princeton pleaded guilty to one embezzlement count.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reports that Harvey’s attorney turned over a $14,605.75 check for restitution during Friday’s hearing in Mercer County Circuit Court.

Harvey told the judge that she went to Sheriff Don Meadows and admitted embezzling money when she heard that there might be an investigation.
