JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley has charged a former Greenville city clerk with stealing more than $150,000.

The felony public corruption charges, announced Thursday, accused Pamela S. Birmingham of improperly writing herself several checks from city bank accounts between 2014 and 2016 and of falsifying city records.

A press release from Hawley’s office alleges the theft nearly bankrupted Greenville, a southeast Missouri town with a population of 511 in the 2010 census

A representative of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department said Birmingham was booked, bonded and released Wednesday.

Birmingham’s lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment.

A spokeswoman for Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway said an ongoing review of Greenville confirmed the misappropriation of funds.

A request for comment from the city of Greenville was not immediately returned.
