ANTIGO, WI (WTAQ) - A town clerk and treasurer in northeast Wisconsin is facing 43 felony charges in a theft and forgery case.

43-year-old Melissa Bloechl of the town of Elcho is free on a signature bond, and the status of her case will be reviewed on September 11th in Langlade County Circuit Court.

According to reports, another town officer notified sheriff’s deputies – and a local financial institution raised questions after money was allegedly withdrawn from town accounts over several years.

One check was said to be over $52,000, and another was around $40,000.

Bloechl is charged with one count of theft, two counts of forgery, and 40 counts of misconduct in office.
