Former town manager’s theft case set over
The lawyer representing the former town manager of Harbour Grace says she needs to talk with her client about the Crown’s position before they can proceed further.
Lisa Charmaine Carroll appeared in Harbour Grace Prov- incial Court last Wednesday. The 47-year-old who also goes by Lisa Pike is charged with breach of trust by a public official, theft over $5,000 and theft under $5,000.
Defence lawyer Rosellen Sullivan told Judge Jacqueline Brazil during Carroll’s last appearance in March she expected to deal with the matter expeditiously. Sullivan reiterated this on Wednesday, indicating they will likely proceed by speedy disposition when the case returns to court May 12.
The town hired Carroll two years ago, but she resigned in January. This was around the same time the town filed a complaint with RCMP. Police charged her in February. She was released from custody at that time.
