ST. JOHNSBURY — A 52-year-old woman from Waterford is facing charges of embezzlement following an investigation opened in St. Johnsbury back in September.

On September 27, state police began conducting an investigation into a report of embezzlement by a former employee of MCB Leasing and Classic Designs by Matthew Burak, both located in St. Johnsbury.

Police identified the employee as Lisa Goodell, who was employed as a bookkeeper and managing consultant by these companies from 2018 until 2021.

It was later found that unauthorized funds, in excess of $200,000, had been misallocated to Goodell through various channels.

Today, a citation was issued to Goodell through her attorney for her to appear in court in January to answer to the charges.
