FBI evidence control technician Melissa L. Sims found a nifty way to take home some extra cash from work: She stole it, the feds say.

The Post-Tribune reported that FBI employee Melissa L. Sims is charged with stealing between 30,000 to $80,000 from the FBI’s Merrillville, Ind.  office evidence room.

The paper reported that Sims, as part of her job, oversaw evidence and was supposed to make sure it was eventually returned to the owner. Instead, she forged vouchers showing she had returned money when in fact she hadn’t.

The scam went on until August 2008, and a month later, she left the office. the paper reported. It reported that it was unclear whether Sims was fired or quit.
