Quartzsite Police evidence tech pleads guilty

A former evidence technician for the Quartzsite Police Department has pleaded guilty to stealing about $25,000 from the department, according to the Associated Press.

Christy Conley, 46, was indicted in May for stealing about $20,000 in cash from an evidence safe in 2017, including $13,000 that belonged to a deceased man’s estate. Investigators say she also charged more than $4,000 on a work credit card.

State prosecutors say Conley pleaded guilty to one count each of fraudulent schemes and artifices and tampering with evidence. She reportedly lit a fire inside the evidence room in an attempt to hide the crime.

Conley was arrested in Wisconsin on a state grand jury warrant and was extradited to Arizona to face charges.

  1. All of this plus her past history when working for the ambulance company and she’s out of jail with a fine to pay back what she took? Who the heck is going to hire her?
