Former Harvey Convention Center Employee Guilty Of Theft

A former employee of the Harvey Hall Convention Center has been found guilty of stealing thousands of dollars from the city. A jury found Lisa Russell, a former clerk, guilty of stealing more than $16,000 from the center from January 2001 to January 2002.

Officials say Russell was responsible for making reservations and accepting payments to book the center. They say Russell would accept check and cash payments, deposit the checks, but keep the cash.

Russell is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
