$15,000 Missing - Wolcott Fire Dept. treasurer charged

by Mickey Smith | News & Citizen

    The former treasurer of the Wolcott Volunteer Fire Department has been charged with embezzlement.
    About $15,000 is missing from the department’s funds, and authorities allege Bobbi Jo Clark, 43, of Wolcott took the money.
    Clark will be arraigned Feb. 17 in Lamoille County Superior Court.
    Sgt. Chris Watson of the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department said the investigation discovered that about $15,000 has been missing since 2013. A complaint about the missing money was filed about a week ago, and police have been investigating since then.
    Belinda Clegg, the Wolcott Select Board chair, said town officials have been asked not to comment on the case until after the arraignment, as the investigation continues. She expected the town government and fire department to issue a statement at that time.
    Clark is listed as an employee of the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles. Her Facebook page describes her position as “customer service” for the department.
