LEVELLAND -

A federal grand jury indicts a Levelland woman accused of embezzling money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Court documents indicate Cecilia Chavez used the Levelland Housing Authority's credit accounts and money for personal use - more than $44,000 of it.

She's indicted on two counts: theft from a program getting federal money and stealing more than $1,000.

If she's convicted, she has to give back all the items she's accused of buying or make up the $44,000 to the government.
