RALSTON, Neb. (AP) _ An Omaha woman has been accused of stealing more than $41,000 when she worked for an Omaha suburb’s chamber of commerce.

Douglas County District Court records say 42-year-old Michelle McElligott is charged with felony theft. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call Tuesday from The Associated Press.

A court document says that, without permission, McElligott wrote more than 60 three-figure checks to herself on an account belonging to the Ralston Chamber of Commerce. The court document says the last check was written on July 12 for $745.
