Former Enon treasurer free on bond

The former Enon treasurer, who is under indictment on charges of tampering with evidence and theft in office, is free on bond.

A Clark County grand jury recently indicted Debra Maurer on 12 counts of tampering and a single count of theft in office, and a judge continued her bond at $5,000. Maurer has since posted that bond.

Maurer, 48, was arrested in January on charges accusing her of embezzling $40,000 from the village and altering village financial records between 2008 and 2012.

According to court records, she is accused of depositing village funds into personal bank accounts and altering Enon’s financial records to conceal the theft. She also failed to return financial records when her term as treasurer ended on March 31, 2012.

Village officials reported a discrepancy of more than $227,700 in its books to the sheriff’s office in September. That report launched the investigation. The sheriff’s office worked with the Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigations to review documents and electronics seized from Maurer’s home when a search warrant was executed in September.

Trial for Maurer is scheduled for April 17.
