    June 28,2013

    BARRE — A Barre Town man has been charged with felony embezzlement for taking nearly $3,000 in cash from his employer Capital Candy Inc.

    Kyle M. Edson, 28, pleaded not guilty to the charge Thursday in Washington County criminal court in Barre. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $500 fine.

    According to the police affidavit, Edson took $2,988.35 in cash payments made by business owners to Capital Candy last November and December and converted the funds for his own use. The company called police after it was discovered that several amounts were coming up missing after Edson received cash payments from the customers.

    When police spoke to Edson, he admitted to charging the customers full price for the goods when they were supposed to get a credit and he would pocket the difference. He told police he took around $3,000.
