MERRIMACK — A Manchester woman was arrested Saturday on theft and computer related charges, accused of using more than 2 million of her former employer's airline miles to fly to places like France, Italy and Greece, police said.
Tiffany Tomaselli, 36, of 144 Crystal St., was charged with theft by unauthorized taking and computer-related offenses, both felony charges. Police allege the airline miles were worth more than $300,000.
According to a release, Tomaselli had worked as an executive assistant who administered several accounts for the company, to include travel and air miles that were put in a company pool account, before she was terminated in 2013.
An investigation revealed Tomaselli allegedly manipulated email and passwords to an account related to Delta Airlines, and allegedly accessed it after she left her job, using the "SkyBonus points" to travel, including to Europe.
Tomaselli surrendered to police Friday and was released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail, police said. She is scheduled to appear in Hillsborough County Superior Court Dec. 7.
