A former southwest Iowa library director is charged with theft after an audit identified thousands of dollars of improper billing for personal items. Forty-one-year-old Stacey Buick was the library director in Malvern. An audit released earlier this month concluded Buick altered receipts and billed the city for nearly $33,000 worth of big ticket items, like a home theater system and a window air conditioner as well as smaller purchases, like laundry detergent and Easter candy.

Buick resigned from the job last year. She’s been charged with ongoing criminal conduct as well as theft.
