A former Pennsylvania constable failed to turn over more than $1,500 he collected from individuals who owed fines to the court, Allegheny County prosecutors say.

Corey Evans, 29, of Elizabeth Township is charged with seven counts of theft for collecting the money from seven people but failing to turn it over to District Judge Beth Scagline-Mills.

According to the criminal complaint, a man presented Mills with a receipt for a payment he made to Evans for an outstanding warrant for his arrest. Mills, whose office had no record of receiving the money, contacted the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office on April 21.

That call led detectives with the DA's office to interview others who had outstanding warrants from Mills' office. The DA's office said six other people paid fines that Evans never turned over to the court.

When interviewed by investigators, Evans said he didn't remember the incidents. He resigned on April 29 and returned $243.
