CASPER, Wyo. — A 38-year-old former public employee in Wyoming has pleaded not guilty to stealing nearly $20,000 from the city of Casper.

Heather M. Kirkendall entered her plea last week to a single felony count of larceny before Natrona County District Judge Thomas Forgey.

Kirkendall worked in the city of Casper’s Community Development Department from December 2014 through October 2017.

Court filings in the case say individual receipts issued from the office did not match the worksheets she submitted to bankers during a 17-month period between May 2016 and October 2017.

Kirkendall remains free on bond.
