OSAGE, Iowa (AP) - An audit has determined that nearly $6,000 in property taxes and delinquent charges was undeposited or improperly deposited in Mitchell County, where a former clerk pleaded guilty to theft.

The state auditor’s office also said in a news release Friday that a $787 tax payment was improperly diverted to pay a portion of Tracey Mooberry’s taxes in March 2016.

Mooberry worked as a clerk in the county treasurer’s office from 2011 until May 2016. She was given a year of probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanor misconduct in office. Authorities say the thefts occurred in the last few weeks of her employment. The county attorney has said the money was paid back.

Mooberry was on the Mitchell County Conservation Board and the Osage School Board when the charge was filed. She’s since resigned both posts.
