SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – A 47-year-old state Game and Fish Department official is accused of stealing $13,500 of computers from an agency where she previously worked.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Budget Director Kelly Muniz was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of larceny in the theft of a dozen tablet computers from the Department of Health.
State police say they recovered the computers.
Muniz was booked into the Santa Fe County jail and later released. No phone is listed under her name and online court records don’t list an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
The Department of Game and Fish told the New Mexican that it has placed Muniz on administrative leave and the Department of Health told the newspaper that the tablets didn’t contain any sensitive information.
