ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi woman has been sentenced to nearly three years in federal prison for taking other people’s tax refunds and threatening a hit a government agent with a shovel.

The U.S. attorney’s office for northern Mississippi says Monday that 46-year-old Veronica Lloyd of Enid was sentenced Thursday. U.S. District Judge Glen Davidson gave her to two years and nine months in prison and ordered her to pay $52,342 in restitution to her victims who also live in Enid.

Investigators said after Lloyd took people’s money, they were contacted by a fictitious IRS agent and were told not to contact the tax agency.

Lloyd pleaded guilty in June to converting a treasury check to her own use, threatening a Treasury Department agent and committing wire fraud.
