Grand Jury indicts former clerk-treasurer


The former Enon clerk-treasurer accused of stealing nearly $40,000 in village funds was indicted on charges of theft in office and tampering with evidence by a Clark County grand jury on Monday.

According to Clark County Common Pleas Court records, Debra E. Maurer, 48, of 150 S. Harrison St. in Enon, is facing one count of theft in office and 12 counts of tampering with evidence, all felonies.

Maurer was elected as clerk-treasurer in November 2003 and again in November 2007. She didn’t run for re-election again and her term expired on March 31, 2012.

After Maurer’s term ended, village officials allegedly noticed several accounting concerns including an inability to balance village financial books, unpaid state taxes, discrepancies with bank statements, two employees with Social Security numbers of 999-99-9999, and failure to return bank statements, payroll documents and other reports to the village offices.

The grand jury also returned the following indictments:

• David L. Arnett, 27, Clark County Jail, two counts of forgery.

• Jeffery L. Owens, 57, 919 Mound St., burglary.

• James M. Bruner, 27, 40 E. Madison Ave., Apt. 1, burglary.
