MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Prosecutors say an apartment property manager and her mother have been charged with stealing more than $8,000 in rent payments from tenants.

The Shelby County district attorney’s office said Wednesday that 40-year-old Candace Monie and her mother, 61-year-old Margaret Moore, have been indicted on charges of theft over $1,000 and identity theft.

Investigators say Monie, the property manager of two apartment complexes in southwest Memphis, collected money orders from tenants as rent payment. Authorities say Monie altered 17 money orders by changing information on them, and then deposited the money orders in bank accounts belonging to her and her mother.

Online booking and lawyer information was not available for Monie and Moore late Wednesday.
