FAA worker admits theft from agency
A 34-year-old Landover woman who worked for the Federal Aviation Administration admitted in federal court Monday that she stole more than $123,000 from the agency by using her government credit card for personal purchases.
Keysha Logan pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt to embezzling more than $1,000 in U.S. government property. Between 2007 and the fall of 2010, Logan, who worked in the FAA's office of the comptroller, bought gift cards on her government credit card. She then approved the gift card purchases, but used the gift cards for her own private use.
In one instance, court records say, Logan on Jan. 23 used the agency MasterCard at Home Depot, buying a $200 American Express gift card and three $100 Visa gift cards. She then used the FAA computer system to approve the charge.
On Sept. 1, the records state, Logan was interviewed by law enforcement agents and admitted to making unauthorized charges.
Logan, who is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 3, faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
