Brandon woman accused of stealing from UVM

Burlington, Vermont - December 6, 2010

A Brandon woman is accused of stealing from the University of Vermont.

UVM Police believe 34-year-old Olivia Chicoine misused her university-issued credit card, racking up between 17 and 22-thousand dollars worth of merchandise over a 10-year period.

Chicoine worked as a secretary and gift shop supervisor for the UVM Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge. Investigators say she signed her boss's name on expense reports so she could buy groceries, gas, clothes, farm supplies and other items for her personal use.

Chicoine pled not guilty to embezzlement in September but on Monday her lawyer updated the court, saying his client is working on making restitution. Court documents show Chicoine resigned her job at UVM when the allegations came to light.
