Former Plaistow finance director charged with theft
Janet Gallant of Pelham was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony theft by unauthorized taking or transfer.
The town hired an outside accounting agency to conduct an audit of her work after she was fired in September.
"We have insurance for these types of issues, but certainly we're going to do everything we can to ensure that any and all funds can be recovered that have been misappropriated. Certainly this is something that we take very seriously and we will take every step to protect the integrity of the town's fiduciary responsibilities," said town manager Sean Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald said the town "identified some concerns" about Gallant's work at the end of 2012. He said the accounting firm was hired in January to look into the concerns that allegedly involved Gallant making unauthorized electronic payments.
Gallant could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
She was released on $50,000 personal recognizance bail and is due in court in January.
