Dalton Woman Suspended from Fire Rescue Squad After Theft Accusations at Fatal Accident Scene

The former mayor of Dalton has been suspended from the fire and rescue squad.

42-year-old Tara Lindquist is accused of stealing money from the scene of the Kvalvog accident on I-94 near Fergus Falls in June.

And authorities are looking at other possible thefts at the crash scene.

Lindquist was among the first responders at the crash that killed 18 year-old Zachary and 14 year-old Connor Kvalvog, of Moorhead.

The brothers attended Park Christian School and were on their way to Wisconsin.

Lindquist was convicted in 1996 of theft of public assistance, including food stamps.

She will be off the job until the investigation is complete.
