The former treasurer of an Oneida County volunteer fire department is free on a $2,500 signature bond after she’s accused of taking money from the Little Rice Volunteer Fire Department’s checking account.

RaginaMarie Reimert, 33, is charged with misconduct in public office and theft.

Investigators say they found evidence that she took more than $2,300 during six month span, including $1,000 by a telephone transfer from the department’s account to her husband’s.

Reimert’s husband is a volunteer firefighter on the department. He told investigators he had no knowledge of the alleged misconduct. Reiment’s father had been fire chief. He and the defendant have both resigned.

The Town of Little Rice is near Tomahawk.

Reimert will return to court Sept. 15.
