    BENNINGTON ó Vermont State Police say theyíve arrested two people in connection with a fraud and embezzlement investigation at a Shaftsbury plumbing company.

    Theyíve arrested 36-year-old Lisa Taber and her husband, Jeremy.

    Police have accused Taber, of Hoosick Falls, N.Y., of using funds from the Latif Plumbing and Heating LLC business account to pay her cable, power and credit card bills, and property taxes. She was hired last year to handle payroll, taxes, invoices and company bills.
