Claremont postmaster accused of school theft
The head of the postal office in Claremont has been accused of taking more than $2,000 from a school Parent/Teacher Organization savings account.
The Eagle Times reported that Rebecca Remick, a former member of the Claremont Middle School PTO, has since paid back the money back. She blamed tough financial times for what happened, saying, “I had to feed my kids.”
Claremont police Chief Alex Scott said detectives were alerted in April after the school found some financial discrepancies.
Remick, who has worked for the postal system for 16 years, said she never did anything illegal in her job as postmaster. The police have alerted the United States Postal Service about Remick’s arrest and investigation.
Remick is free on personal recognizance bail. She’s scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 25.
