The former executive director of Central Alberta Theatre has been cleared of theft in connection with money alleged to have gone missing from the Red Deer-based company.

William Paul Trefry, 45, was scheduled to stand trial in Red Deer provincial court on Nov. 18, represented by Red Deer lawyer Glyn Walter.

Trefry was charged with a single count of theft after being accused of stealing between $6,000 and $7,000 from the theatre company during the two years in which he was employed as its executive director, starting in the spring of 2010.

The trial was cancelled, however, after all charges against him were dismissed.
