Former Illinois city treasurer indicted in theft

Audit: $316,000 gone after Zeigler ex-treasurer indicted

ZEIGLER (AP) – An audit has found that a small southern Illinois city’s former treasurer who faces a federal indictment may have stolen nearly $316,000.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports that the audit for the city of Zeigler reports that former treasurer Ryan Thorpe allegedly stole the money from January 2013 to August 2017.

A federal grand jury indicted Thorpe Oct. 3 on three counts of wire fraud and two counts of embezzlement, accusing him of stealing money during his time as Zeigler treasurer.
