Office manager charged with faking abduction in CU robbery
WORCESTER, Mass. (10/18/10)--The office manager of a Worcester, Mass-based credit union that was robbed Aug. 27 and her husband are on trial for faking her abduction and stealing more than $200,000. Susan Carcieri, 59, office manager at WG FCU, Worcester, and her husband, George Labadie, 51, are charged with bank embezzlement and attempted counterfeiting and possession of counterfeiting equipment (Telegram.com Oct. 15). An investigator testifying at the trial in Worcester Superior Court said investigators found $4,000 in $10 bills hidden in an exterior wall of the couple’s home two days after they allegedly staged a robbery at the credit union. Court records indicated that $20,900 in $100 bills were recovered from home. Carcieri had reported she had been a victim of a robbery. Officers found her tied to a chair in the kitchen area of the credit union. Her feet and left hand were loosely bound to the chair with cords from a window blind. Her right hand was free, according to Detective Dennis Cullina.
