The former Norwalk assistant town clerk turned herself into police Wednesday after she was accused of taking thousands of dollars from the town.
The town clerk in Norwalk reported to police that he "discovered irregularities in various transactions at the Norwalk town clerk's office."
Once police learned about "irregularities," they launched an investigation, which led to the arrest of Deborah Troy, 42, of Norwalk.
Police said that more than $3,000 had been taken from the Norwalk town clerk's office and funds have been stolen from the town since 2010.
Troy was charged with first-degree larceny. She was released on a promise to appear at Norwalk Superior Court on Nov. 8.
