A former clerk for the Orleans Police Department was arraigned on larceny charges in Barnstable Superior Court on Friday.  According to a release from the MA Attorney General's Office, 60-year-old Anne M. Reynolds of Eastham pleaded not guilty to four counts of larceny over $250 and four counts of making false entries in corporate books.

A Barnstable Grand Jury indicted Reynolds in December 2012. Reynolds was the clerk for the Orleans Police Department and the secretary and treasurer of the Orleans Police Relief Association.

Reynold's worked as a civilian clerk for the police department for over 20 years, according to the AG's Office. Between January 2007 and March 2012, it is alleged that Reynolds stole approximately $92,000 from Orleans Police Relief Association (OPRA) accounts by making cash withdrawals and writing unauthorized checks to herself, cash and third parties to pay personal expenses.

Barnstable Superior Court Judge Gary Nickerson presided over Thursday's arraignment.  After pleading not guilty, Reynolds was released on personal recognizance.

According to the Attorney General's Office, Reynolds is due back in court on February 25 for a pre-trial conference. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
