YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown man has been indicted for a third time for allegedly stealing money while he was employed as a temporary worker at the Mahoning County Auditor's office.

A county grand jury on Thursday handed up a fifteen count indictment against Kyheem Underwood, charging the nineteen-year-old with theft, theft in office, forgery and receiving stolen property.

The indictment alleges that Underwood took more than $1,000 while working for the county in June and July of last year.

Underwood was one of four seasonal workers hired to perform clerical work under a government training program last summer when he allegedly forged names on more than $1,200 worth of of checks from three private citizens.

Underwood has been indicted twice before for similar crimes.

In October he was charged with theft, forgery and receiving stolen property.

He pleaded guilty to the stolen property. The other charges were dismissed and he was placed on probation.

Underwood was indicted again in January.

He pleaded guilty to theft in office and forgery. A theft charge was dropped.

Underwood was still waiting to be sentenced for those crimes when the latest indictment was handed down.
