A Woodstock woman is accused of embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Plainfield company.
Cheryl Hicks, 59, faces a first-degree larceny charge. Plainfield police allege that Hicks, while working as the office manager for Concrete Floors Company, inflated her salary for years. Hicks is also accused of using company credit cards and other company accounts for personal purchases.
Authorities said in total she stole nearly $500,000.
Hicks turned herself into police Wednesday and was released on a $10,000 bond. She is due in Danielson Superior Court on Nov. 19.
