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

Susan Hawes, 49, is alleged to have taken the gift cards worth a total value of $650 after they were never rewarded as prizes. After investigation, police discovered that all of the missing cards had been used through a Hannaford’s loyalty rewards account associated with Hawes.

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.
