Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” A former employee was charged Friday with three felonies for allegedly swindling Pitkin County out of thousands of dollars in a credit card scheme, according to a court filing.

Amber Fisk, 29, stands accused of two counts of theft between $1,000 and $20,000, and unauthorized use of a financial transaction device of $1,000 to $20,000. She faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted as charged, based on state sentencing guidelines.

Fisk, a Longmont resident, is free on $12,500 bond.

Longmont police arrested her April 29 on a warrant issued out of Pitkin County.

Fisk is a former employee of Aspen/Pitkin County Airport. She allegedly used a county credit card to rack up about $4,900 in personal charges while she was employed in the airport’s administrative office, court documents show.

Fisk is also alleged to have rung up about $1,500 on a county-issued cellular telephone for personal use. She was terminated from her airport position Sept. 15, 2008.

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

Fisk is to appear at 10:30 a.m. Monday in Pitkin County District Court.
