Wood River woman gets 30-month sentence

EAST ST. LOUIS - A judge Thursday sentenced a Wood River woman to 30 months in prison in connection with the looting of a family-owned heating and cooling business in Wood River.


U.S. District Judge Michael J. Reagan sentenced Mary R. Storer, 40, a former employee of Elk Heating and Cooling, to a jail term and more than $266,000 in restitution to the company. She also must pay more than $76,000 in back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service because of money she collected for withholding taxes but did not pay.

Prosecutors said Storer pleaded guilty and admitted she had taken money from the firm and gambled it away at area casinos.
