MARYDEL, Md. (AP) - The mayor of a tiny Caroline County town has been accused of stealing more than $61,000 in town funds.
    
The office of the state prosecutor said in a news release that Marydel Mayor Deborah Rowe was indicted by a Caroline County grand jury Wednesday on charges of theft, misconduct in office and forgery.
    
Census records show Marydel has a population of about 150.
    
The charged reportedly say that Rowe is accused of using the money to pay taxes on personal property in North Carolina, cable and cellphone bills, and rooms at an Ocean City hotel.
    
Media outlets report that Rowe, who has been mayor since 2008, wrote checks to herself by forging the signatures of the town's two commissioners.
    
Rowe did not return voicemails or an email seeking comment.
