    A Silver Spring woman has been charged with stealing money from elderly residents that was meant to pay for meals through a county nutrition program.

    Kunthea Lun, 29, admitted to taking about $388 from residents of the Forest Oak Towers apartments, an affordable housing complex in Gaithersburg, said Montgomery County police. She was charged with theft and fraudulent misappropriation.

    Lun was responsible for collecting contributions from residents to pay for meals offered through the county, as part of her job with the Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission.

    Police say Lun's supervisors noticed she had not made deposits in April or May. Lun suddenly stopped coming to work on May 21.
