Ex-Orleans police clerk pleads guilty to theft


A former Orleans Police Department clerk has been sentenced to 2½ years in jail for stealing $92,000 from the town and the police relief fund. Anne Reynolds of Eastham pleaded guilty Tuesday to larceny of more than $250 and making false entries in corporate books. The Cape Cod Times reported that Reynolds, 60, was also ordered to repay the money. After retiring in 2011, she continued acting as the secretary and treasurer of the Orleans Police Relief Association until March 2012, when her theft was discovered. Prosecutors said she took the relief association funds by making cash withdrawals and writing checks to herself, to cash, and to third parties.
