A woman who worked at the National Institutes of Health has pleaded guilty to theft of government property and money for using government credit cards for personal use.

Tamia McCoy, 32, of Germantown entered the plea in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Friday. She will be sentenced July 26, when she faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.

According to her plea agreement, McCoy was issued government credit cards to purchase goods and services for official use. She used the cards to buy items she later sold on the Internet, including more than 100 iPads.

The loss to the government is between $70,000 and $120,000.
