Former San Bruno jewelry company worker takes plea deal
May 07, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Michelle Buckius

A former temporary worker at a San Bruno jewelry company who allegedly sold its goods for personal profit on eBay pleaded no contest Tuesday to felony grand theft in return for no more than six months in jail.

Michelle D. Buckius, 49, must also repay $8,063 to the Stella & Dot online accessories company by her July 18 sentencing.

Buckius was hired in March 2013 as a temporary accounts manager and the company’s chief financial officer reportedly noticed items shipped from 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.

She remains free from custody on $10,000 bail pending her sentencing hearing.
