SMITHS STATION, AL (WSFA) -

The deputy chief of the Friendship Volunteer Fire Department was arraigned Wednesday on federal charges of embezzlement.

Angelia Curran, a Smiths Station resident, pleaded not guilty to the three counts of theft concerning programs receiving federal funds that she's been indicted on.

Curran submitted grant applications to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 2005, 2006 and 2008 that would have provided funds for the purchase of protective fire equipment and other items including an Automated External Defibrillators.

U.S. Attorney George Beck, Jr. says the grant requests were honored by FEMA and the Friendship VFD was awarded over $295,000. Now, the federal government is alleging that Curran embezzled more than $15,000 of the federal funds.

If convicted, she could face a maximum 10 year prison sentence and $250,000 fine for each count.

Curran was released from jail on a $25,000 unsecured bond. Her case is set for trial on October 24, 2011 in Opelika.
