TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wabaunsee County woman faces federal charges accusing her of embezzling from a scientific research institute at Kansas State University.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says 51-year-old Linda Kay Miller, of Alma, is charged with three counts of interstate transportation of fraudulently altered securities. The government is seeking a money judgment of about $16,500 against Miller.

The indictment says the alleged thefts occurred while Miller was an office manager for the Bio-Security Research Institute at Kansas State University from August 2007 to January 2013. The institute receives grant money from the federal government to provide infectious disease research programs that address threats to plant, animal and human health.

Online court records don't list a lawyer for Miller.

If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison and fines.
