LECLAIRE, Iowa (AP) - The former president of a volunteer fire association in eastern Iowa has been accused of theft that involves the organization.

The LeClaire Police Department said Thursday that 44-year-old Shawn Ream has been charged with second-degree theft. A message left with his attorney was not immediately returned Thursday.

Ream is the former president of the LeClaire Volunteer Firefighter Association, which is not affiliated with the city.

Police say they contacted state authorities in June following suspicious financial transactions on the association’s bank account. Additional information was not released.
