MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles worker has been ordered to appear in court along with a Massachusetts man to face charges that they were involved in a bribery scheme.

Capt. Drew Bloom of the DMV’s Enforcement Division says 35-year-old Chandra Lamery (LA’-mer-ee’) of Marshfield received less than $500 worth of jewelry and money from Alaa Elhassan (AH’-lah ehl-hah-SAHN’) of Chicopee, Mass., in exchange for circumventing DMV procedures and helping him get five certificates of title showing vehicles had been rebuilt.

Bloom says the certificates of title have since been revoked.

Lamery has been placed on paid leave pending completion of an investigation. The charges carry a penalty up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

It was not known if the two had lawyers.
