Village clerk accused of stealing $71,000

CRAINVILLE (AP) — A former village employee in a small southern Illinois community has been charged with theft and misconduct after authorities say she stole nearly $71,000 from public accounts.

WSIL-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1hkpmyp ) 62-year-old Linda Harvill is set to appear in court next Monday. The TV station says she spent more than 20 years working as a clerk in Crainville's water department.

Prosecutors say the money was stolen from January 2010 until June 2012.

Harvill's phone number rang to a busy signal Wednesday before disconnecting phone calls.

Crainville has about 1,000 residents and is in Williamson County, about 8 miles east of Carbondale.
