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.
