Question of the Day
WOLCOTT, Conn. (AP) - A former town tax collector in Connecticut has been arrested on allegations she deleted important data from town computers after losing an election.
Wolcott police told the Republican-American (http://bit.ly/1eEBOKy ) that 54-year-old Cheryl Brundage erased more than 2,000 files from 400 folders - including tax payment information - only hours after the polls closed Nov. 5.
The files were backed up on a server and were able to be restored.
Brundage surrendered at the police station Wednesday after learning there was a warrant for her arrest. She was charged with felony computer crimes and released on a promise to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on Jan. 30.
Brundage didn’t immediately return a message Thursday. It’s not clear if she has a lawyer.
