Husband wife team convicted of 200000 CU theft
WORCESTER, Mass. (10/28/10)--A husband and wife have be found guilty of stealing more than $200,000 in 2002 from the Wyman-Gordon FCU, now called W-G FCU, in Worcester, Mass., where the woman worked. After being found guilty in Worcester Superior Court Tuesday, George Labadie and Susan Carcieri are scheduled to be sentenced Monday (Associated Press Oct. 27). The couple staged the robbery in August 2002 at the credit union where Carcieri worked as an office manager, prosecutors said. Labadie was convicted of counterfeiting. After the robbery, large amounts of cash were found in the couple’s home, the AP said. The couple robbed the credit union because they had financial difficulties, authorities said. The couple has said they are innocent and that they kept large sums of cash in their home, according to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette (Oct. 20).
