MEIGS COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A fiscal clerk with the village of Syracuse was arrested Monday and accused of stealing money from her employer, according to a news release from Syracuse Mayor Eric Cunningham’s office.

Megan Drummer-Doczi, a fiscal officer and Board of Public Affairs (BPA) clerk with the village of Syracuse, was charged with theft in office – a third-degree felony. Doczi was arraigned in Meigs County Court and released on a personal recognizance bond.

On Monday night, Village Council members and the BPA voted unanimously to terminate Doczi. She initially had been placed on unpaid administrative leave Thursday, March 21.

Mayor Cunningham suggested a resolution requesting a special audit of all village funds during Doczi’s employment, which council members passed. Doczi had worked as a fiscal clerk since September 2012.

The investigation continues, and Syracuse Police Chief Garry R. Freed is the primary investigator.
