Kinross City Clerk Admits to Theft

KINROSS, Iowa (AP) -- The former part-time clerk in the tiny southeastern Iowa town of Kinross is facing a criminal investigation after admitting that she embezzled $15,000 or more.
   The State Auditor's Office released a report Thursday indicating that former city clerk Toni Miller was responsible for roughly $20,000 in improper spending in the town of 70 residents.
   Miller resigned last year after she was confronted about a $1,000 check she made out to herself from the city's bank account. She gave a written statement to the Keokuk County Sheriff's Department admitting that she took $15,000 to $20,000 "to help pay my bills and cover expenses."
   The report says Miller wrote herself dozens of improper checks for payroll, mileage and other expenses. She earned a $600 annual salary in the part-time job.
