A Big Island woman is facing 27 counts of embezzlement from H & H Food Market.
Christina Carmichael Poore, 37, was arrested in April. The 27 embezzlement charges span a time period between July 1, 2005, and Dec. 1, 2007. In each charge she is accused of embezzling more than $200 from H & H Food Market off Lee Jackson Highway.
According to Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney John Wheelock, Poore, who was employed by the store, allegedly used the store's return key to extract cash from the register. That key is used to obtain cash when a customer returns products.
