Former North Platte official pleads not guilty in theft case

Gavel (MGN)

The former director of North Platte's Housing Authorities has pleaded not guilty to theft and several other charges.

Lincoln County District Court records say 42-year-old Jennifer Smith, of Hershey, entered the pleas Monday. The records also say federal prosecutors may be filing a case against Smith.

The county Sheriff's Office has been working on the case with state and federal investigators. The case surfaced in February, after a bank alerted authorities about suspicious activity with an account.
