A Blaenffos woman has denied stealing £62,640 from Ceredigion County Council.
Susan Crawford Edwards, aged 54, of Clover Hill, Blaenffos, Boncath, pleaded not guilty to a charge of theft by an employee between August 6 2008 and July 31 2012 at Cardigan, when she appeared before Aberystwyth magistrates on Wednesday.
She also denies a charge of false accounting at Cardigan between the same dates.
Magistrates declined jurisdiction, and Edwards will next appear at Swansea Crown Court on June 13.
She was released on unconditional bail until that date.
