State orders former Alexandria official to repay $201,000

An audit of Alexandria shows the extent of the thievery committed by the Licking County village’s former fiscal officer, Ohio Auditor Dave Yost said.

The audit covering 2014 and 2015, released Tuesday, orders Laura VanScoy Andrews to repay $201,153 to the village for checks she wrote to herself, money she stole from deposits and payments that lacked supporting documentation.

The former fiscal officer for the village of about 530 people is serving four years in prison, and ordered to pay restitution and court costs, after she pleaded no contest in November to third-degree felony charges of theft in office and tampering with records and a second-degree misdemeanor charge of dereliction of duty.

“I’m just so sorry,” VanScoy Andrews, 50, of Utica, later told Licking County Common Pleas Judge Thomas Marcelain at her sentencing.

2. She should be sorry

for bankrupting that village. I don't understand how anyone can believe that they are going to get away with a crime of that magnitude without someone noticing.
