A suspect accused of stealing more than $25,000 from a northern New Mexico MVD is trying to make things right.

Melissa Mead was arrested in January.

Police say she stole the money from the Bloomfield Motor Vehicle Department to feed her gambling addiction.

That is according to KOB Eyewitness News 4’s media partners at the Farmington Daily Times.

Mead is now working to pay back the entire amount she stole.
