A local town was swindled by its own town clerk, according to State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli.
Dorothy Hart is accused of stealing over $35,000 from the Town of Mayfield from January 2011 to February of 2015.
Some of the money had been paid to the town as penalty fees on property taxes.
About $8000 of the money had been paid for dog licensing and similar fees.
The former town clerk has been arrested and charged with grand larceny.
