SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A former parts manager at a South Burlington car dealership has been charged with selling thousands of dollars of parts bought with the company’s credit card and pocketing the proceeds.

The U.S. attorney’s office said Tuesday that 44-year-old David Cote of Essex Junction has pleaded guilty to access device fraud.

He’s accused of buying parts and accessories on e-Bay using the Freedom Nissan credit card and selling them in private sales, without reimbursing the car dealership.

Cote served as parts manager of Freedom Nissan from 2009 until he was fired in 2012.

He faces up to 10 years in prison and a maximum $250,000 fine.
