Janelle Marie Adams, 42, of Hammond, pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Clatsop County Circuit Court to first-degree aggravated theft. The alleged theft occurred between May and November 2013. Warrenton Police Chief Mathew Workman said the investigation began in September 2014. Adams was arrested last month after a grand jury indictment.
