Woman sentenced for computer fraud

Posted: Tuesday, January 26, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A 26-year-old Anchor Point woman has been sentenced to three months in prison for 16 counts of computer fraud that netted her more than $85,000 from a Homer store.

Heidi Adams pleaded guilty in September. She was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Court Judge Ralph Beistline and also ordered to pay restitution for the amount stolen.

Federal prosecutors said Ulmer's Drug and Hardware in Homer hired Adams in April 2002 as an inventory and returns clerk.

From February through October 2006, on 16 occasions, Adams made false entries into the computer at Ulmer's, fraudulently indicating that an item had been returned and taking cash from a register in the refund amount. The court found that she had stolen at least $85,000. The FBI and Homer police investigated.
