The former head of the Portsmouth Recreation Department has been charged with embezzlement after a town investigation found thousands of dollars missing from a beach fund.

The Newport Daily News reports that town officials say finance staff discovered a number of discrepancies in the Sandy Point Beach fund after the sudden resignation of Timothy Dunbar in September. He turned himself in Saturday.

The 42-year-old Dunbar, of Middletown, was arraigned by a justice of the peace and was released on $5,000 surety bail.

Town Administrator Richard Rainer says it was unclear how much Dunbar allegedly took, and the town may never know.
