Theft Charge Against Former City Clerk Dismissed

A theft charge against the former city clerk of Westfield filed after a complaint of misappropriation of city funds was investigated has now been dismissed.

The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office on October 11th charged 48-year-old Angela Lynn Sorensen of Westfield with second-degree theft, a class “D” felony. She had been accused of using 89-hundred dollars in city funds to buy personal items. The funds had been raised for a public park and T-ball complex.

Monday, prosecutors filed a motion to dismiss the charge against Sorensen to allow additional time for investigation.
