#Bridgeport, CT – Nov. 20, 2013 – A 35-year-old woman faces charges she fraudulently took more than $14,000 in overtime for hours she never worked.

Nicola Myers, of Bridgeport, worked for a property management company as an administrative assistant. She is accused of submitting her time sheets for approval and then subsequently manipulating them to reflect hours she didn’t work. In all, she is accused to being paid for 453 hours she didn’t work.

A company official contacted police after the suspect was confronted and admitted the fraud but refused to make restitution. She no longer works for the company.  Detective Frank Podpolucha investigated the case.  She faces charges of first-degree computer crimes and second-degree larceny.
