Ex-employee sentenced for stealing

Published 5:15 pm, Thursday, August 2, 2012

WILTON – A 39-year-old woman began serving her one-year prison sentence Thursday for stealing cash and dental products from a Wilton dentist.

Bonnie Marie Piro, 29, received the one-year sentence for fourth-degree larceny. The sentence was imposed Thursday at Norwalk Superior Court.

She also received prison sentences for theft- and narcotics-related charges in Bridgeport and Derby. The sentences will run concurrently, and they were imposed on Thursday.

Piro, a former receptionist at Wilton Dental Associates, offered clients a 10 percent discount for paying in cash.

A woman allegedly made $1,850 in cash payments toward her dental procedure and Piro pocketed the money.

Piro also allegedly stole old gold dental crowns from her employer and sold them to a scrap metal merchant, according to an affidavit.

In e-mails to her employer, Piro admitted to the theft and promised to take money from her daughter’s disability checks to pay for the missing funds, according to the affidavit.

When Wilton Dental Associates laid off Piro in October 2011, she was given a check for $750, police said. Piro wrote a “1” in front of the “7” on the check and wound up cashing a check for $1,750, according to police.

Wilton Police arrested Piro on Dec. 17, 2011 and again on June 1, 2012 in relation to the thefts. She was originally charged with fourth-, fifth- and sixth-degree larceny as well as second-degree forgery.
