CEDAR CREEK, Neb. (AP) - A former village clerk in eastern Nebraska has been accused of embezzling nearly $80,000.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1j9rXgo ) 69-year-old Mary C. Terry, of Cedar Creek, faces a felony charge of theft by deception. Court records do not list an attorney.

An arrest affidavit says Terry wrote checks to herself without approval from the village board. The money was allegedly taken from the village’s general fund. Terry denies the allegations.

Authorities believe Terry stole the money between January 2009 and January 2014. They suspect she took more money but statute of limitations restricts criminal charges.

Cass County Attorney Nathan Cox says Terry turned herself in to authorities on April 3. She was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.

Terry is scheduled in court on April 29.
