LIBBY, Mont. -

A former Lincoln County Sheriff's Office detective's assistant who authorities say took $11,000 from the 24/7 Sobriety Testing program faces a charge of felony embezzlement.
The Western News reports ( that the Montana Attorney General's Office last week released an affidavit indicating sufficient evidence exists to charge 37-year-old Amy C. Butler.
An internal investigation in May found that more than $11,000 was missing.
An investigation by Sheriff Ruby Bowe found that Butler had been gambling at local casinos. At one, she wrote checks for $8,800 since April 2012.
Bowe says Butler admitted taking money from the program starting in about July 2012.
Butler's arraignment is set for Jan. 13.
