Rosemarie Bader, 51, who allegedly stole more then $1 million worth of theme park tickets was arraigned before Supreme Court Justice Danny Chun for grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property at Brooklyn Supreme Court, the Brooklyn Eagle reports.
Bader was formerly sales director of a bus company. She allegedly stole more than a million dollars in amusement park tickets using the company’s credit card.
Bader allegedly used the company credit card to buy more than 36,000 theme park tickets to nearby attractions.
The company, Best Trails and Travel Corporation (BTTC), is located at 5 Signourney St. in Red Hook.
Between January 2014 and November 2016, Bader allegedly bought 23,136 tickets to Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She also bought 13,102 tickets to Six Flags in Jackson, New Jersey. A number of the theme park tickets were redeemed at the parks but unconnected to company trips. The remainder were kept by Bader “for her own use.”
It is estimated that the total value of the tickets was $1.533 million.
Bader’s alleged scheme was discovered by an employer in 2016. It was discovered when revealed that company ticket orders exceeded available bus seats. She was fired in October 2016.
She faces up to 25 years in prison. The trial continues.
