Baltimore Woman Pleads Guilty to Using NIH Credit Card for Personal Use

BALTIMORE, Md.- The U.S. government is out between $70,000 and $120,000 after a woman who worked at the National Institutes of Health pleaded guilty to theft of government property and money. Tamia McCoy, 32, used her government issued credit card for personal use.

McCoy, of Germantown, entered her guilty plea on Friday in U.S. District Court. She faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.

The credit cards were issued to McCoy to buy goods and services for official use. However, it was shown that she used the cards to buy items and sell them on the Internet, including more than 100 iPads. She will be sentenced July 26.
