WATERBURY CENTER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police and the FBI are investigating a complaint about missing funds involving the Cold Hollow Cider Mill, one of the state’s busiest tourist attractions.
A criminal complaint was filed June 6 about missing funds at Cold Hollow, according to state police records.
The investigation led to questions about the finances at Harwood Youth Hockey, also known as the Friends of Harwood Hockey, the Burlington Free Press reported (http://bfpne.ws/12be9bp ). The FBI is now part of that investigation.
U.S. Attorney for Vermont Tris Coffin has declined to comment on the investigation.
Paul Brown, the owner of Cold Hollow, said Tuesday that he would not comment until there’s a citation, arrest or indictment.
‘‘We’re not going to say anything that’s going to jeopardize the investigation,’’ he said.
Harwood Youth Hockey officials did not want to comment on the investigation.
‘‘We have been and will continue to fully cooperate with the investigation,’’ said Angela Wells, president of the Harwood Youth Hockey Association.
Harwood Youth Hockey was started in 1980 to teach hockey to boys and girls from the towns of Waterbury, Duxbury, Moretown, Waitsfield, Warren and Fayston.
