ASPEN ” A former county employee was arrested Wednesday evening for allegedly swindling Pitkin County out of thousands of dollars in a credit card scheme.

Amber Fisk, 29, is accused of two counts of theft between $1,000 and $20,000.

Fisk, who was arrested in Longmont, was released from the Boulder County jail Thursday on two separate bonds totaling $12,500, authorities said. One bond was in the amount of $5,000, the other totaled $7,500.

The arrest stemmed from a warrant issued in October out of Pitkin County. Chief Judge James Boyd signed off on the arrest warrant.

Fisk, a Longmont resident, is a former employee of the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport. She allegedly used a county credit card to ring up thousands of dollars in charges for personal use while working at the facility.

It was not clear when she will appear in Pitkin County District Court. Aspen prosecutors have not yet filed charges in the case.

Prior to working for the airport, Fisk served as the payroll and benefits manager in the Snowmass Village finance department.
