INDEPENDENCE — A Galax woman has been indicted on four charges in connection with the alleged embezzling of money and goods from Gardner’s Pawn Shop in Galax.
Carolyn Burcham Akers was indicted by a Grayson County Circuit Court grand jury on April 23 for grand larceny of jewelry, tools and personal property from the shop and three counts of obtaining money by fraud or false pretense of more than $200.
The offenses allegedly occurred between July 2009 and Jan. 31, 2010.
An indictment is a formal charge, not a finding of guilt.
