SALISBURY — Indictment records say that former Spencer Mayor Alicia Bean took money from the Spencer Jaycees on five separate occasions between July 2007 to August 2008, totaling more than $8,000.
She was indicted earlier this month on six counts of embezzlement.
Bean, who was treasurer for the Jaycees from 2006-09, turned herself in at the Rowan County Magistrate’s Office Thursday night. She was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $6,000 bond and released a short time later.
The indictment records list dates and amounts of money taken, including:
• July 20, 2007 — $241.91.
• Aug. 30, 2007 — $1,272.94 and $614.25.
• Nov. 7, 2007 — $1,000.
• June 4, 2008 — $1,293.67.
• Aug. 22, 2008 — $4,000.
The records do not show how the money was spent. Former Jaycees President Kevin Hall did not detail how the money was spent.
He served as president during the time Bean was treasurer.
He said last week club members were glad to see court action being taken.
In May 2009, Bean was also involved in an armed standoff with police.
She held authorities at bay with an unloaded assault rifle for nearly an hour. Officers initially responded to someone threatening to attempt suicide.
Bean must appear in Superior Court in December to answer to the charges included in the indictments, records said.
