Staff at a local veterans shelter say the Monday arraignment of a man who stole thousands from the center has finally given them a sense of closure. James Harold Reardon, 42, appeared in a Gila County courtroom in Globe on two counts of theft after authorities extradited him from Florida where he had fled after allegedly stealing from the veterans shelter in December. Reardon remains in jail on a $25,000 bond. His next court appearance is July 13 in Payson before Judge Peter Cahill. Andrea Russo, Veterans Helping Veterans assistant director, said she felt vindicated on Monday as she watched Reardon walk into court wearing handcuffs.
