A Randolph woman has been sentenced to a year in prison for embezzling more than $167,000 from the town of Bethel, where she worked as a cashier for a solid waste facility.
Thirty-seven-year-old Tonya Drury had pleaded guilty to federal embezzlement charges in November. On Monday, she was sentenced to one year and one day in prison and ordered to pay $168,000 in restitution.
Prosecutors say that between 2005 and 2010 she misappropriated cash payments to the Bethel/Royalton Solid Waste Facility and altered the facility’s records to hide her actions.
The facility is owned by the towns of Bethel and Royalton, but is managed by Bethel.
