NORWALK, Conn. – More charges have been levied against a former Norwalk assistant town clerk, who was arrested by Norwalk Police recently as a result of an investigation into a report of money missing from the town clerk’s office.
Debbie Troy, 42, of 6 Catalpa St., was arrested Oct. 30 and charged with Larceny 1st degree. The Connecticut Judicial website now lists three additional charges: illegal alteration of records, forgery second degree and tampering with physical evidence.
Norwalk Police Chief Thomas Kulhawik said the charges were added by the prosecutor.
The prosecutor was not available for comment. Town Clerk Rick McQuaid did not return a phone call asking for comment.
The larceny 1st degree charge, a Class B felony, stems from an offense on Nov. 27, 2012, according to the judicial website. The three additional charges stem from an offense on April 29, 2010, the website says.
Norwalk Police say that Troy stole more than $3,000 dollars while employed in the town clerk’s office and that this activity had been occurring since at least 2010. She was fired in late June. She had been placed on leave in January while the matter was under investigation.
