BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A former grocery store manager has denied charges of embezzling nearly $70,000 from the store where she worked in Lyndonville.

Thirty-six-year-old Deborah Williamson, who now lives in Florida, pleaded not guilty on Thursday.

The office of the U.S. attorney for Vermont says between 2010 and 2012 Williamson stole nearly $70,000 from the safe at White Market, where she worked as a manager and regularly cashed checks drawn against the company’s bank account to get cash and coins for the cash registers.

Prosecutors say she allegedly tried to cover of up the thefts by not recording or underreporting the amount of cash received from the bank.

She faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 if convicted.
