PUEBLO, Colo. (CBS4) – A woman who was found guilty of stealing more than $730,000 from the Great Sand Dunes National Park has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Former park employee Lydia L. White, 49, pleaded guilty in May to theft of government property and money laundering, according to the Pueblo Chieftain.

White admitted to falsely writing 870 National Park Service checks totaling $731,009 to her husband between March 2007 and December 2010.

The national park system no longer uses government checks.
