Ex-Manager Accused of Embezzling $400K From Non-Profit




    A former manager for a Connecticut-based non-profit that helps the elderly, as well as people with developmental, intellectual and physical disabilities, is accused of embezzling more than $400,000 from the organization.

    Michelle Labrec, 52, of Ronkonkoma, New York, was the manager of accounts payable at Allied Community Resources in East Windsor and police said she embezzled funds the State Department of Social Services allocated to the non-profit, according to police.

    Coventry police arrested Labrec Wednesday after a 10-month investigation and charged her with first-degree larceny, first-degree identity theft and 114 counts of second-degree forgery. They said she was a Coventry resident at the time of the alleged crime. 

    Labrec was released from custody on a non-surety bond and is scheduled to appear in Rockville Court on Oct. 6.

    Police said the case was referred to the state Department of Revenue Services to investigate further.

    Allied Community Resources provides financial management services for several state funded programs, as well as those funded through Medicaid waiver.
