A 56-year-old Colchester woman pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport to embezzling more than $400,000 while working as a bookkeeper for the Greylock Property Group of Mystic.

Vicki Miller pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud and agreed to make full restitution to the victim. She faces a maximum of 20 years when Judge Kari A. Dooley sentences her on Nov. 15.

According to the government, from approximately June 2017 until August 2018, Miller was employed as a bookkeeper by Greylock and its owner, Brian Navarro.

Beginning in approximately July 2017, Miller used her access to her employers' bank accounts to embezzle $413,180 of their money by making withdrawals at ATMs, writing checks to herself and transferring funds to her own accounts, according to the government.

Since Miller's arrest on Feb. 13, 2019, she has been free on a $50,000 bond.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with the assistance of the Town of Groton Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Francis.
