Ex-Iowa rescue squad treasurer ordered to pay thousands

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A former treasurer of Anthon's rescue squad in northwestern Iowa has been ordered to repay more than $83,000 she's accused of misspending.

Kristine Roggatz was ordered by a judge Wednesday to make the payment to cover the nearly $77,000 she's accused of taking from the group and another nearly $6,900 for the cost of an audit that discovered the malfeasance, the Sioux City Journal reported Friday.

The judgment was part of a lawsuit the city brought in 2017 against Roggatz after the town's insurance carrier covered the losses.

An investigation found that from 2009 through 2014, Roggatz used the squad's money to make payments on her personal credit cards, withdraw cash from ATMs and other personal items and services.
