A former federal employee is facing federal charges for allegedly stealing from veterans. 37-year-old Terrence Starks of Bunker Hill is accused of transferring veteran's benefits to a girlfriend's bank account. The feds say he was working with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at the time.
Federal prosecutors claim that Starks changed the routing and account numbers to divert the money. There's no word on how much money was lost to the victims who rightfully were owed the funds. Starks was charged in federal court in East St. Louis on Friday.
