CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A former messenger for the West Virginia Parkways Authority has pleaded guilty to stealing $41,000 in cash.

WCHS-TV reported Wednesday that 47-year-old Patrick Brady Springman of Bluefield entered the plea to one felony count of embezzlement.

Kanawha County Prosecutor Charles Miller says in a statement that Springman admitted to taking the money for his own use over a four-month period last year. He was fired from his job, which involved picking up cash, checks and money orders paid to the Parkways Authority at locations along the West Virginia Turnpike. Springman was supposed to make deposits at a Charleston bank.

State police found $116,000 in checks and money orders during a search of his home. Those were deposited into the state’s account.
