    Warrant issued in car money theft

    BARRE — A warrant has been issued for a Wallingford man who missed his hearing on charges he stole $2,500 from Poulin Auto Sales in Barre.

    Jeffrey Smyrski, 45, is facing a felony charge of grand larceny and a misdemeanor charge of petit larceny in Washington County criminal court in Barre. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 11 years in prison and a $1,500 fine.

    According to the police affidavit, Smyrski worked at Poulin Auto from August 2011 until April 29, 2012, when sales manager Dominic Martin told police Smyrski failed to show up for work.

    Police say Smyrski was given $2,500 in cash by a customer April 28, 2012, as the down payment on a Dodge truck. Martin told police that according to company procedure, Smyrski should have given the money to the company’s secretary but failed to do so and didn’t give the customer a receipt.

    Smyrski was scheduled to have a status conference on the case Monday but failed to show up. Judge Thomas Zonay issued a $1,000 arrest warrant for Smyrski.
