SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a federal grand jury has indicted a former Symantec marketing director for allegedly embezzling more than $1.3 million to help fund a lavish lifestyle.
U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag said Thursday that Lena "Mickey" Jacobs Coombs of Highland, Utah, was charged with 26 counts of wire fraud and 10 counts of money laundering for her alleged scheme while working for the tech company in Lyndon, Utah, from 2010 to 2012.
Coombs allegedly used company-issued credit cards to pay for personal expenses including vacations, hotel stays, car payments, home remodeling, childcare and concerts.
In addition to submitting false expense reports, Coombs also created a shell company to embezzle money from Symantec. She is due in federal court in San Jose on July 11.
Coombs did not immediately return calls seeking comment. It is not known if she has an attorney.
