Feds: 2 W.Va. woman hid stolen funds at VA center
08/26/2013 - The Associated Press
CLARKSBURG - Two union officials at the Louis Johnson Veterans Administration Medical Center in Clarksburg are set to appear in court.
The women were indicted earlier this month on federal charges that they received and concealed more than $1,000 apiece in embezzled funds.
U.S. Department of Labor records identify Janet Posey as president of American Federal of Government Employees Local 2384, and Linda Bland as its vice president.
The indictment says Posey's crime occurred between July 2009 and September 2012.
Bland is charged with concealing the funds from June 2011 to August 2012.
They're set to make initial appearances in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg this morning.
It's unclear whether the women have attorneys. None are listed in court documents, and a District 4 union official didn't immediately return a message.
