Dallas County collections worker accused of theft

DALLAS (AP) - A worker who oversaw cash transactions for the Dallas County district clerk's office has been charged with stealing more than $20,000.

32-year-old Shundra Young has been charged with felony theft by a public servant. Prosecutors say the collections supervisor, who was fired in August, allegedly voided receipts from cash transactions and pocketed the money.

A review of an excessive number of voided receipts led to Young being charged last week and then freed on $2,500 bond.

District Clerk Gary Fitzsimmons says Young was a manager who double-checked transactions. Officials don't believe customers were later mistakenly accused of failing to pay court fees due to the way records allegedly were manipulated.

No publicly listed phone number could immediately be located for Young.
