    Sears salesman pleads guilty to embezzlement

    BENNINGTON ó A former salesman at a Sears in Bennington has pleaded guilty to stealing thousands of dollars in equipment from the store.

    Seth Coulter pleaded guilty to embezzlement and was given a one-to-two-year sentence with time to complete a substance abuse program.

    An audit from February 2011 showed that inventory at the Sears at Monument Plaza was off by $24,000.

    Another audit in August showed $5,000 in inventory mistakes.

    The Bennington Banner reports police searched a shed behind where the 24-year-old Coulter lived and found numerous Sears items such as mowers and small power tools.

    They said they found more items in the home, including two televisions. Property recovered there was estimated at being $12,500 in value.
