CANTON (AP) - A former town supervisor in northern New York has been accused of embezzling $35,000 and then trying to cover up the theft.
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says 39-year-old Susan Smith took the money from the St. Lawrence County town of Pitcairn.
He says she used her town position and job as a bank branch manager to arrange unauthorized payments to herself and others for a year starting in December 2008.
She's also accused of creating fake documentation when the expenses were questioned by auditors.
The indictment unsealed Monday charges her with third-degree grand larceny, four counts each of offering a false instrument for filing and tampering with physical evidence, and criminal possession of a forged instrument. Information wasn't initially available about whether she has a lawyer.
