Former Marion Official Accused of Embezzling
Heyde managed the water department from 1996 until last year, when she was fired after suspicious transactions were discovered in her department. The indictment alleges that after video cameras secretly installed by police in her office recorded some of her theft, Heyde was confronted by investigators and admitted stealing funds.
A message seeking comment was left Friday with her attorney, John Stobbs II of Alton. Heyde's initial court appearance and arraignment is scheduled for February 5th.
