SELKIRK, N.Y. -- A former treasurer for the Selkirk Fire Department accused of stealing more than $18,000 from the department turns herself in to sheriff's deputies.
An investigation was launched after the fire department discovered unauthorized direct payments to a cellular telephone company from their checking and savings account.
Deputies learned Heather Lynn Burns was responsible for the unauthorized transactions from January 2012 to October of 2013.
Some of the transactions included money transfers, checks written out to Burns, cash withdrawals, and direct web payments to credit cards, utility companies, and insurance carriers.
Burns was charged with grand larceny and released on her own recognizance.
