Book-keeper steals more than $200,000
A book-keeper has admitted stealing more than $200,000 from the dental surgery where she worked.
Devore Brangman pleaded guilty to taking $157,755.67 from the Bermuda Oral Surgery Centre when she appeared at Supreme Court on Monday. She also asked for the theft of a further $78,025.21 to be taken into consideration when she is sentenced.
Brangman, of Paget, initially denied stealing more than $400,000 from the dentist surgery when she appeared at Supreme Court arraignments last August.
The 53-year-old had been charged with 12 counts of stealing credit balances between 2007 and 2011.
However, on Monday, when she was due to stand trial, she admitted a single count of theft relating to $157,755.67 and asked for the theft of a further $78,025.21 to be taken into consideration.
Brangman was released on bail and will appear at the May arraignments for a sentencing date to be set.
