BERLIN, Vt. - A Central Vermont Medical Center employee is accused of embezzlement. 

Alyssa Lothian pleaded not guilty Thursday to embezzling more than $10,000 from the hospital.  She did confess to a Barre police officer to embezzling a lower dollar amount.

According to court documents, her supervisor did an audit and found she was writing checks from the petty cash account to herself.

Lothian worked in the accounting department. She has been fired from her position.

She declined to comment on the charges after her arraignment.
