The Cass County Sheriff says it appears nearly $80,000 of Cedar Creek’s money has been misappropriated.
The investigation focuses on funds added to payroll checks issued to the village clerk over a four-year span but Mary Terry told Fact Finders that she's shocked by the allegation.
“I didn't take anything that wasn't mine,” she said. “I never came up with that much money. It just didn't happen."
Reports will be turned over to the county attorney by April 1 to see if any charges are warranted.
