OAKDALE, Neb. (AP) - The village clerk of Oakdale in northeast Nebraska has been arrested on suspicion of taking money from village accounts.

Sioux City, Iowa television station KTIV reports (http://bitly.com/1DMeQx5 ) that 31-year-old Megan Brandt is charged with theft by unlawful taking and unauthorized use of a financial transaction device. She was arrested Thursday and remained in the Antelope County Jail on Saturday on $100,000 bond.

An arrest affidavit says bank records indicate Brandt signed and forged numerous checks from city accounts in 2013 and 2014 made payable to her or her husband. The total amount came to more than $27,000. Brandt is also accused of making unauthorized withdrawals from city accounts using an ATM card.

Online court records do not show that an attorney has been appointed for or hired by Brandt.
