A Town of Maiden employee was recently indicted on embezzlement charges regarding stolen funds from the townâ€™s Parks and Recreation Department last year.
According to a Maiden Police Department press release, 43-year-old Dennis Rolando Ly, of 246 Golf Course Rd. in Maiden, stole $280 from his part-time employer in September.
A grand jury indicted Ly on Monday on three felony counts of embezzlement of public funds by a public officer or trustee, police said. Ly turned himself into authorities two days later.
Heâ€™s since been released on a $7,500 unsecured bond and is expected to appear before a Catawba County judge on Friday.
