Woman charged with stealing tax refund

A woman, who worked at a Peru tax preparation service, was arrested Monday on a charge she stole a client's tax refund.

Rebecca A. Godina, 24, of Spring Valley, is charged with telling a woman her tax refund would be loaded onto a credit card, but instead loaded it onto another card, which Godina then spent. The money in question amounted to more than $500, with Godina's activities occurring Feb. 3-6, according to prosecutors.

Godina was taken to the La Salle County Jail, where she bonded out on $500 cash.
