MAPLETON, Utah (AP) -- The former financial recorder for Mapleton has been charged with theft over financial irregularities in the city's books.

Prosecutor Craig Johnson says Jeannie Bell has been charged with one second-degree felony count of theft.

Johnson says Bell, 48, allegedly bought stamps and gift cards on behalf of the city, then sold them on the auction Web site eBay from January 2007 to May 2009.

Bob Bradshaw, Mapleton city administrator, says Bell was promoted to recorder in 2003. She resigned on June 1.

Court records did not list an attorney for Bell. A phone listing for her had been disconnected.

Bell is due in 4th District Court on Aug. 13.
