A Manchester woman turned herself in to authorities yesterday amid allegations she stole nearly $20,000 from her employer over two years, the Concord police said in a press release.
Rosanne Breault, 47, was charged yesterday with theft by unauthorized taking, misuse of a computer and tampering with public or private records, a combination of felony and misdemeanor charges.
She was released on $21,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned at the district court in Concord on Jan. 28, Concord police Lt. Timothy O’Malley wrote in the release.
Breault could not be reached for comment.
She began working at NH Print & Mail Services on Terrill Park Drive in 2005, said Kevin Boyarsky, one of the company’s owners.
From December 2010 until October 2012, Breault stole 63 checks issued to NH Print & Mail Services and deposited the money into her own account, the police said. Their total value was about $19,500.
“It’s sad because of the betrayal by an employee,” Boyarsky said. Breault was a manager at the company, which he said employs 26 people. Breault no longer works there, he said.
Boyarsky contacted the Concord police Nov. 6 to report that checks made out to the company, which he owns with Cheryl Boyarsky, had been stolen.
He also told them that computer records and physical invoices had been removed or deleted to cover up the thefts.
The amounts were small enough, Boyarsky said, that their absence initially flew under the radar.
“It was caught just in the normal course of business,” he said.
He said he has closed loopholes in his firm’s technology that allowed the breach and that the firm is still on good footing because Breault worked in only one section of the firm.
Boyarsky said he felt many executives wouldn’t have reported the theft to spare their companies bad publicity. But, he said, he felt he had an obligation to report it to prevent other thefts down the line.
“I really feel that what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong,” he said.
