Former Ambulance Manager Ordered to Repay $240K
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The former general manager of Village Ambulance pleaded guilty Wednesday to stealing $240,000 from the service over a five-year period.
Albert Miller, 59, pleaded guilty to a single count of larceny, an ongoing and continuing offense.
He and his wife, Cara Miller, 58, who was the service's office manager at the time, were accused of overpaying their salaries and using the service's credit card.
The couple first entered not-guilty pleas to the charges in February.
On Wednesday, Albert Miller changed his plea to guilty and was placed on three year's probation and ordered to pay the $240,000 back in restitution by Judge Daniel Ford.
Cara Miller's case is still pending.
The Millers were fired after an audit uncovered irregularities in the service's books in 2011. The investigation was conducted by state police detectives assigned to the district attorney's office.
