A former RG&E employee is accused of defrauding the company.
Prosecutors say she changed information on inactive accounts to have refund checks issued to herself.
Phally Suong, 34, is charged with mail fraud. The criminal complaint says Suong used her position as a customer service representative to get into billing systems and alter customer information so she would receive the checks.
Prosecutors say Suong would cash the checks, then go back into the system and change the information back to the customer's. Officials say this happened between 2012 and 2013 and was discovered through an internal audit.
We're told RG&E lost nearly $200,000. Suong is due back in court next month.
