TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette cleaning lady nets a five year sentence after she stole more than $1,000 from her employer.

Tamara Snell, 44, pleaded guilty in March to one count of forgery and one count of theft.

A woman who hired Snell to clean her house called police after three checks were stolen from her home and cashed. Prosecutors said the stolen funds amounted to more than $1,000.

Security video from a credit union showed Snell cashing the checks.

Snell was sentenced Wednesday to two years of community corrections and three years supervised probation.
