A Monahans woman is headed to the federal pen for mail fraud and identity theft.

54-year-old Elizabeth Smith Casey was sentenced to more than two years behind bars for collecting interest on oil field royalties that belonged to other people who had not collected them.

She pulled it off after researching county records.

In addition to the prison time, she'll have to pay all the money back, a fine, and be on probation when she gets out.
