A Whitney Point woman has been accused of stealing about $30,000 from a northern Broome County fire department.

Authorities say 58-year-old Terry Gow was taken into custody Wednesday.

According to the Broome County Sheriff's Office, Gow allegedly embezzled the money while she was treasurer of the Glen Aubrey Fire Company.

Investigators say they believe the money was used by Gow for personal expenses.

Gow was charged with third-degree grand larceny, a felony. She was arraigned in Nanticoke town court and released.
