DURANGO, Colo. — A southwest Colorado woman is accused of embezzling more than half a million dollars from the dental office where she worked.

The Durango Herald reports 49-year-old Robin Bernazzani has been charged with felony theft for allegedly stealing the money from Dental Associates of the Southwest over a six-year period.

Investigators say she stole the money through such methods as writing checks to herself or using a doctor’s credit cards to pay for personal bills and online shopping.

Court records show Bernazzani and her lawyer went to the dental offices on May 1 to confess.

She and her attorney did not return calls seeking comment.
