RYAN, OK (KSWO) -The former treasurer for the Town of Ryan, who was accused of embezzling nearly $100,000, has been charged.

Kathy Laskowski was charged Monday with two counts of embezzlement. Investigators said she admitted in a taped interview that she took between $3,000 and $4,000 a month during the two years she was on the job. The missing money and thousands of dollars in equipment were cited in a report from the state auditor November 2015, following their investigation into the city's finances.

Laskowski resigned from her position July 2015. She was released on a $5,000 bond Monday.  A preliminary hearing conference has been scheduled for next Tuesday.
