A city of Las Vegas accountant has been charged with embezzlement in the utilities department.
Margaret Cordova, 39, an accountant and a supervisor with city utilities, was charged last week with embezzlement and tampering with evidence.
On July 18, Cordova stole $1,104 from a money bag that another employee took to City Hall, according to a criminal complaint filed in Magistrate Court.
The complaint states that Cordova admitted to taking the money. She told a city police investigator that she needed money to make a house payment, according to documents.
