ATLANTA (AP) - In a story Oct. 13 about a federal worker being convicted of theft, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the woman is a former Environmental Protection Agency employee. The woman is still employed with the EPA.

A corrected version of the story is below:

EPA worker convicted of theft from employer

Environmental Protection Agency worker pleads guilty to stealing, pawning equipment

ATLANTA (AP) - Fulton County prosecutors say an Environmental Protection Agency worker has pleaded guilty to stealing equipment from her employer.

District Attorney’s spokeswoman Yvette Jones says 51-year-old Kathy Armstrong pleaded guilty to theft Monday morning. Jones says Armstrong, a public affairs specialist, stole more than $3,000 worth of equipment from the EPA.

Jones says Armstrong had access to camera and video equipment. Jones says Armstrong stole as many as six cameras and video recorders and pawned them at local shops. Jones says the equipment was stolen between July and September 2012.

Prosecutors say Armstrong was sentenced to three years of probation and serve 50 hours of community service. Armstrong is also ordered to pay more than $3,100 in restitution and pay a $1,000 fine.
