The former part-time executive of the Lamoille Area Board of Realtors, is facing charges that she embezzled nearly 30-thousand-dollars from her employer in less than a year.

Thirty-year-old Piquette Scribner of Johnson has pleaded not guilty in Vermont District Court to three felony counts of embezzlement.

The board discovered the missing money and reported it to police in July.

Association Attorney Tom Heilman says that separately from the court case, Scribner agreed to repay the money and resign rather than be fired.

Police say financial records show Scribner used association money for a variety of personal needs, including buying clothing, groceries and paying her mortgage.
