WESTFIELD, Iowa — A former city clerk in northwest Iowa has been accused of stealing money while on the job.

Court records say 48-year-old Angela Sorensen is charged with theft. A public phone listing for her isn’t available. Court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for her. Her next court hearing is scheduled for Oct. 30.

The records say that when Sorensen was clerk for Westfield, she had control of an account in which money was amassed for a public park and T-ball complex. The records say the town mayor contacted authorities in September, after the loss of nearly $9,000 was discovered.

Sorensen had resigned in August.
