ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A Nevada resident has been indicted for falsely taking annual checks given to Alaska residents for their share of the state's oil wealth.

Tyrene Stallworth was indicted Wednesday by an Anchorage grand jury and charged with six counts of theft and 15 counts of unsworn falsification.

A release from the Alaska Department of Revenue says she and her four children received more than $44,000 between 2003 and 2009. Officials say she didn't disclose that she was no longer a resident of Alaska on the Permanent Fund Dividend applications.

The state initially filed charges in 2009 and issued a warrant. The release says she was arrested in July and pleaded guilty to felony theft since she hadn't claimed that money to Nevada public assistance officials. She was then extradited to Alaska.
