BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - An employee at the state Office of Motor Vehicles is accused of felony theft.

Louisiana State Police say they arrested Heather Prather, a 34-year-old from Baker, Monday after an internal audit found money missing from the Office of Motor Vehicles.

State police say more than $4,000 could not be accounted for and that records were altered to hide the alleged theft. Investigators say Prather admitted to stealing cash and falsifying records to conceal her alleged actions.

She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of felony theft, injuring public records and malfeasance in office. It was unknown if she has an attorney.

Prather was placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation. She has been with the OMV for eight years.
