ONAWA, Iowa (AP) - A former Iowa county auditor convicted of a drug charge last year has been accused of embezzling money through credit card purchases.

State Auditor Mary Mosiman says in a report released Thursday that 29-year-old Brooke Kuhlmann used a Monona County-issued credit card to make more than $7,000 in improper charges. They included 10 purchases of $100 debit cards from Wal-Mart and more than $700 from the WinnaVegas casino in Sloan.

Kuhlmann pleaded guilty in late December to possession of a controlled substance, after authorities said she bought methamphetamine from an undercover Iowa State Patrol officer in July 2013.

Kuhlmann resigned in December. Officials taking over her duties contacted the state auditor’s office after identifying unusual credit card statements.

The report has been sent to local and state law enforcement agencies.
