LANDER, Wyoming — A judge has set a November trial date for a former director of the Pioneer Museum accused of stealing materials from the Lander institution.

The Riverton Ranger reports (http://bit.ly/1lCs5ou ) Carol Thiesse pleaded not guilty to two felony charges her arraignment Tuesday in Lander District Court.

The 58-year-old faces one charge of larceny by bailee and one of destruction of intellectual property.

Prosecutors charge she stole $29,000 of interpretative signs and flyers from the Pioneer Museum in the summer of 2012. The second charge alleges she deleted digital versions of those items and other computer files.

Thiesse's lawyer, Tim Kingston, has argued at an earlier hearing that the property had no value and that Thiesse did not convert it to her own use.
