BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors say a Massachusetts woman embezzled more than $1.8 million from a now-bankrupt time-share resort.

The Cape Cod Times reports 61-year-old Donna Zoppi, of Eastham, pleaded not guilty to a charge of larceny during her arraignment Wednesday.

Zoppi worked as the former office manager at Harbor Hill at Provincetown, and prosecutors say she was the only employee who could access the resort’s bank accounts.

Authorities say Zoppi wrote herself checks, used the resort debit card and wired money from the resort into her personal account from 2008 to 2015.

Court records show by the time owners realized her actions, the resort owed more than $900,000 in back taxes, employees were going without paychecks and the telephone service was close to being cut off.

Zoppi’s attorney has declined comment.
