A former Friendsville City clerk has pleaded guilty to stealing thousands of dollars in just a few months.

Investigators say Machella Meaghan Gilliam stole $15,000 over a 10-month period.

The report shows she took cash payments from utility customers. Then, she would falsify the records and keep the money to herself.

Gilliam pleaded guilty to theft over $10,000 earlier this month.
