    Woman accused

    of embezzling

    BENNINGTON — Vermont State Police say they’ve arrested two people in connection with a fraud and embezzlement investigation at a Shaftsbury plumbing company.

    They’ve 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.

    The business owner said he was forced to lay off workers and hadn’t turned a profit for months.

    Authorities suspect more than $48,000 was taken.

    Taber has been accused of numerous counts of embezzlement. Her husband has been accused of issuing threats against the company owner.
