Tina Craddock Vance-Husband Mark best friend Meredith Bragg Collier- husband John Collier all from Beckley area except Mark Vance he was raised in the Glen Daniel are.

Meredith was the controller for a local hospital in Charleston WV with a 6 figure a year income. All 4 was charged with embezzling $78,000 dollars from the hospital. Meredith was writing checks in these individuals names paying them 3 to 5 thousand more than the wage being paid. They then split the money and maintained their drug addictions. Such Sas Xanax, Adderall/Ritalin/Focalin Crack Cocaine, oxycodone in which the Vance's being I'VE drug users.

Tina Craddock-Vance reported South Central Refional jail in Charleston WV today to befine serving 6 months because she was highly intoxicated during the hearing. The judge had originally gave her probation until she appeared in front of him blown away.

Meredith Bragg Collier was to report to jail to serve a 3yr sentence for the crime but failed to show up. She is in the run and has brought even more trouble for her.

Mark Vance- and John Collier was given 1 year probation.

Meredith and Tina friends for 30 plus years are at each others throats over the scheme

Meredith and her husband John Collier began aa high school sweethearts going seperate ways as young adults then rekindling in later years.

This is pathetic that this has happened and the blame was thrown at each other no one would fess up to the crime but pushed blame on one another to save their own a**

The bad thing is that both of these couples have children that had to face this at young ages.

They are claiming that Craddock- Vance was having a seizure while in front of the judge: If u know her she faked it to cover for reporting under the influence of prescription drugs.

These drugs are causing fairly descent people to do things that are unimaginable. At least justice was served and 2 more crooks of the streets!

How embarrassing to their families but 40+ year olds know better!!!!! Did they actually think ur would never catch up with them! Idiots....or....junkies?

All 4 of the involved are well known drug dealers' at least Tina Vance is off the streets and can't sell drugs to teens unfortunately her husband Mark is unemployed and and still out here selling the drugs. That is the families only source of income because non of them can hold a job for very long because of their addictions. SO SAD!!!!

and Amanda, are you a judge? I'm sure you're not, however you must be a comedian. Most people that post on these forums do not hold a job, nor higher education.

And, do you have a job?? If you had a "higher" education, you sure failed to use it. So evidently, you fit right on topix, huh? Who are you to judge the people of topix with your record? Yes, I do work and yes I have an education. I would think you would have more things to worry about than our jobs and educations.

I have a job thank you for asking!! And in my opinion, there is nothing worse than a theif! It is dishonest and skanky. You took money to feed a drug problem and youre going to tell me I am a comedian?? Sorry sweetie, but your credit went down the drain the judge looked at you and said, "GUILTY!!"

I knew her fifteen years ago. She was a good friend of mine. This is all very shocking to hear.
