Forgery, Theft in the Heartland

GARRISON, Iowa — The former library director for Garrison has been accused of stealing city funds reports the Chicago Tribune.

The Gazette, of Cedar Rapids, says 41-year-old Mary Sheeley, of rural Garrison, is charged with forgery and theft. She was arrested Monday and was released pending a court appearance scheduled for Wednesday.

Authorities say Sheeley forged the city clerk's signature on 36 checks between August and December.

Benton County Sheriff Randy Forsyth says the checks totaled nearly $4,100.
