A Clarksville, New Hampshire woman has been charged with stealing more than $350,000 from a Colebrook, New Hampshire, Chevrolet dealership.

Tina Fournier’s alleged thefts occurred between January 2017 and December 2021 at Noyes Chevrolet and its predecessor, Brooks Chevrolet, according to the grand jury indictment.

Fournier’s connection to the stores could not be confirmed. The Conway Daily Sun describes her as a former employee of Noyes Chevrolet.

Fournier, 47, allegedly withdrew $147,975 from the Brooks Chevrolet checking account from January 2017 to April 2019 and another $200,652 from the Noyes Chevrolet account from September 2019 to December 2021.

According to the dealer’s Facebook posts, Brooks Chevrolet was sold in 2018 and renamed Noyes Chevrolet in 2019.

Authorities also accused Fournier of using credit cards associated with Brooks Chevrolet to make more than $3,000 in unauthorized purchases, including Prime Video and hotel stays, between November 2017 and June 2021. She is also charged in using a credit card associated with Noyes Chevrolet to make unauthorized purchases of more than $1,500, including items at a liquor store, casino and local country club.

Fournier’s attorney, Mark Sisti of the Sisti Law Firm, said his client has pleaded not guilty, but the case is in its infancy and he has not yet seen materials such as the police report.

“I have to find out about it first [before commenting]Sisti said on Friday.

Quoos County Prosecutor John McCormick said he could not comment on an active case and could not share the police report or other discovery materials. Colebrook Police Chief Paul Rella confirmed his department was called to the dealership on a report of employee embezzlement, but referred other inquiries to McCormick. Chevrolet Noyes dealer manager Donald Noyes said Friday that he wanted to get approval from his attorney before commenting on the case.

A a grand jury indicted Fournier Oct. 21 on three counts of credit card fraud and two counts of theft by unauthorized taking, all Class A felonies. The indictments do not include a finding of guilt or innocence; they simply mean that the person is now officially charged with a crime.

Fournier is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 17 in Coos County Superior Court.
