HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) - Grand jurors in northwest Indiana have indicted a former Gary city administrator, accusing her of stealing more than 1,000 Apple iPads and other computer equipment.

Federal prosecutors in Hammond said Monday more than 44-year-old Monique Bowling, also known as Monique Boyd, of Merrillville faces counts of theft, identity theft and mail fraud.

Bowling is accused of stealing the computer equipment, which belonged to the city of Gary. The indictment also accuses her of participating in a scheme to use a dead person’s state identification card to obtain pension checks.

Bowling does not have a listed phone number in Merrillville where she could be reached for comment. A phone listing at a previous address in Gary was disconnected.
