Polk County sheriff’s employee charged with fraud

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A clerk in the Polk County Sheriff’s Office has been charged with felony fraud and forgery.

The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/1begMUB ) 43-year-old Kimberly Sapp was released from Polk County Jail on Tuesday. A phone listing for Sapp is no longer in service. Online court records don’t list the name of her attorney.

Authorities say Sapp had applied for and received more than $10,000 in state child care assistance for which she didn’t qualify.

Sapp, of Ankeny, has been a civil processing clerk at the sheriff’s office since August 2011.

Sgt. Brent Long says Sapp’s charges didn’t involve her work. Long also says Sapp has requested and has been granted personal leave.
