A Hampstead man has admitted stealing more than $800,000 in tax refunds checks from a payroll services firm, prosecutors said.

Mr. Kibbe was employed by Ceridian Corp. as an accounting clerk at its Baltimore County office, which received the tax refund checks from the Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities, according to a stipulation of facts contained in a plea bargain agreement.
Mr. Kibbe admitted depositing more than $800,000 in checks into bank accounts he opened.
