MANCHESTER, NH – A Manchester School District employee has been charged with stealing 26 Hannaford gift cards intended for a district-wide fitness challenge.

Hawes turned herself in on Friday and was released on personal recognizance bail. She will be arraigned in Manchester Circuit Court on Dec. 23, 2019.

At the time of her alleged crime, Hawes worked as an account technician in the Manchester School District.
