Former Dorr Township Treasurer Myrna Marr Tuesday was bound over to 48th District Circuit Court on two felony count of larceny.
Marr, 66, who resigned her seat on the Township Board last January after serving for a little more than a year, was arrested by Michigan State Police in June and charged with two counts of larceny of more than $1,000 but less than $20,000, both felonies.
She appeared appeared in 57th District Court Thursday, July 7, after being arrested June 15, and she posted $1,000 bond.
Marr abruptly resigned her treasurer’s position at the beginning of this year after being elected in November 2020. Before then she had served as deputy treasurer to Jim Martin, who retired. She did not give a reason for her resignation.
Townbroadcast, at that time, wrote in an editorial, “… it has been no secret there has been a lot of tension and vitriol between her (Marr) and Trustees Chandler Stanton and John Tuinstra and Clerk Debbie Sewers. Stanton called her out publicly last year after he discovered a discrepancy of a little more than $8,000 in the budget expenditures…”
Laurie Perry has been appointed to succeed Marr in the treasurer’s post and was on the ballot unopposed in the August primary to finish out the rest of the term at the end of 2024.
