Here is her previous escapade from 2014: REDDING — A Milford resident has been accused of embezzling more than $165,000 over the course of two years while she was a bookkeeper at a Redding tree service company. Bernice Dohn, 55, has been charged with seven counts of second-degree forgery and one count of larceny after she admitted to cashing company checks and pocketing the money, according to court documents. Dohn, who was arrested Dec. 5 and is free on $75,000 bond, has pleaded not guilty to the charges. Chris Hyatt, of Evergreen Enterprises, notified police in September when Dohn admitted to stealing from the company, according to the arrest affidavit. The Berlin Police Department, which charged Dohn on Sept. 19 with second-degree larceny, initially alerted Hyatt when they began investigating as much as $53,000 that had been deposited into her bank account over a nine-month period, according to the affidavit. Hyatt confronted Dohn, who confessed to taking money from his company, according to the affidavit. “Hyatt stated he believed Dohn was cashing the checks for his company to take the money and then record the check she cashed in the books as a company expense that was paid,” the affidavit said. Dohn told the police she took the money from Evergreen Enterprises, but was unsure how much, according to the affidavit. After reviewing bank records, she estimated she had embezzled $60,000, but said she didn’t have much of the money left, the affidavit said. According to the affidavit, Dohn made a deposit every month, cashing 93 checks totalling $165,141 from November 2012 to July 2014. According to Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp., Evergreen Enterprises generates an average of $250,000 in yearly revenue. Hyatt could not be reached Thursday for comment.
