FALLON, Nev. (AP) - A Nevada Department of Transportation employee in Fallon has been charged with using a state credit card to support his gambling habit.

Tal Pierre Smith is accused of using the card to buy some $250,000 worth of items he later pawned or sold to pay for the activity.

The Nevada Appeal reports a six-count indictment was filed against Smith this week in New River Township Justice Court in Fallon.

According to the complaint, Smith made repeated illegal purchases over a three-year period ending last December and concealed them by altering receipts and other records.

He was charged Tuesday with four counts of theft and one count each of misconduct by a public officer and fraudulent appropriation of property, all felonies.

It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
