(Full Article)

Two longtime friends of former D.C. tax manager Harriette Walters, including an IRS manager, were arrested yesterday and charged with joining in a massive embezzlement scheme to steal from District taxpayers.

Robert O. Steven and Patricia A. Steven, who are married but separated, were arraigned in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, bringing the number of people arrested in the probe to 10. In an FBI affidavit, they are accused of illegally receiving and cashing at least $2.8 million in 11 fraudulent property tax refund checks that Walters and others allegedly generated.
