BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont woman is facing charges of embezzling $70,000 from the Brandon Inn where she worked as front desk manager.

Thirty-eight-year-old Carmen Dozier of Middletown Springs pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges on Thursday.

A federal indictment accuses her of falsifying payroll records to inflate the hours she worked and causing fraudulent transfers of inn funds to her personal bank account between July of 2013 and May 2014. She’s also accused of fraudulently using the credit cards issued to the inn’s owners to make personal purchases and defrauding the Lake Sunapee Bank by depositing and trying to deposit $20,000 worth of bad checks.

Dozier was released on conditions.

Public defender Michael Desautels, who is representing her, did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
