CLAREMONT, NH – The former office manager of North Country Smokehouse struck a plea deal in an embezzlement case, the Associated Press reported.

Bonnie Johnson is scheduled to plead guilty to wire fraud and will be sentenced to three years in prison. Johnson allegedly stole at least $600,000 from Claremont, NH-based North Country Smokehouse over several years. News reports state that she wrote checks to herself using the owner's signature stamp, misused a company credit card and doctored the company's books to cover her tracks.

Johnson worked 21 years at the artisanal smoked meats and cheese maker.
