BANGOR — The former treasurer of the Bangor-Breakfast Kiwanis Club and Greater Bangor 4th of July Corp. has been charged with stealing more than $100,000 from the organizations.
Bruce Fowle was indicted Wednesday by a Penobscot County Grand Jury on theft charges.
Authorities say the 62-year-old Fowle had been stealing from the organizations for several years, although an investigation began in August only when members of the organizations realized money was missing.
No arraignment date has been scheduled.
The president of the Greater Bangor 4th of July Corp., which raised money for the city fireworks display, tells WABI-TV he was "greatly saddened" by the indictment.
Fowle is no longer involved with either organization.
Prosecutors say none of the money has been returned.
