Former San Bruno jewelry company worker charged with theft
January 03, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Michelle Buckius

A temporary worker at a San Bruno jewelry company helped herself to samples and items shipped from East Coast offices that she later sold on eBay using her husband’s account, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors say Michelle D. Buckius, 48, caused the Stella & Dot online accessories company to lose between $7,000 and $8,000 since her March 25, 2013, hiring as a temporary accounts manager. The alleged theft was uncovered when the company’s chief financial officer noticed items shipped form the East Coast offices were missing and a box of sample jewelry went missing from a desk at the San Bruno office.

Surveillance video from the company office allegedly showed Buckius removing the stolen jewelry and investigators reported finding the missing items for sale on eBay all from the same seller. The seller’s account belonged to Buckius’ husband, according to prosecutors.

Her husband is not charged with any crime because investigators cannot prove he knew anything about the use of his account, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Buckius pleaded not guilty yesterday to felony grand theft. She previously waived a preliminary hearing on the evidence. On Thursday, she also set an April 14 jury trial date.

If convicted, she faces up to three years in jail.

She remains free from custody on $10,000 bail.
