By Scott McCabe, The Washington Examiner

A 61-year-old Bowie woman was sentenced to two years in prison for embezzling at least $379,000 from a labor union.

Ava L. Ramey stole the money from 2005 to 2009 while serving as an official for the United Government Security Officers of America Local 21 in Bowie, prosecutors said.

During those four years, Ramey wrote more than $80,000 in checks from the union account to herself; purchased more than $70,000 worth of merchandise with the union debit card; withdrew more than $60,000 from ATMs; withdrew more than $100,000 of union funds; and wrote more than $60,000 in checks from the union account to her family members.
