BROOKFIELD, Mass. (AP) - An arrest warrant has been issued for a former Brookfield clerk accused of breaking into town hall and stealing money.

The Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1pJK8OO ) that Beth Conant is accused of taking money from a safe after quitting her job and stealing money from deposits while employed for the town.

Police say they unsuccessfully tried to locate her and issued a summons for her to appear in court. When she failed to do so, an arrest warrant was issued.

The 50-year-old Conant faces charges of breaking and entering and trying to break into a locked safe in the tax collector’s office to steal money. Police say those incidents took place on July 29.

Conant told town officials when she quit she was an alcoholic seeking rehabilitation.

It was not known Sunday if she has a lawyer.
