Former Colebrook Fire Department treasurer accused of embezzlement

LANCASTER — A Coos County Superior Court grand jury has indicted the former treasurer of the Colebrook Fire Department and Colebrook Fire Precinct for embezzlement over a four-year period between January 2010 and June.

Doreen Smith, 51, of 151 Main St. in Colebrook, is charged with two Class A felony counts of theft by unauthorized taking and four Class A misdemeanor counts of tampering with public records or information for allegedly filing financial records she knew were false during that time.

The theft counts involved sums greater than $1,500, according to the indictments.

In other indictments the grand jury handed up during its August session:

Joshua Riff, 23, of 88 High Street in Berlin, is charged with first-degree assault, a Class A felony, on May 26 in Berlin. Riff is accused of using a deadly weapon, a knife, to injure Jonathan Bailey.

George Iskandar, 42, of 138 East Milan Road, in Berlin is charged with delivery of articles to prisoners, a Class B felony, on Nov. 15, 2013, at the New Hampshire State Prison, Northern State Facility, in Berlin. He's accused of delivering buprenorphine tablets on that date, according to the indictment.
