NEGAUNEE — A former cashier of the Negaunee State Bank yesterday was bound over to circuit court here on charges of embezzling funds of the bank. Several weeks ago, when he was arraigned on a warrant charging him with embezzling $20,000, he demanded an examination, but yesterday his attorney informed the justice that his client had decided to waive. He is at liberty under $20,000 bonds. Yesterday afternoon he was arraigned on five additional warrants charging criminal offenses ranging from falsification of records to embezzlement of bank funds and defrauding the bank.
