FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - State prosecutors have filed a felony theft charge against a former University of Alaska employee suspected of taking more than $4,000 in university airlines miles and credits for personal use.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://bit.ly/1uK4ObW) reports an auditor in January noticed irregularities in an Alaska Airlines EasyBiz account that 39-year-old Jennifer Lynn Mahler administrated for the statewide Office of Human Resources.

A complaint filed by UA Fairbanks Police deputy chief Stephen Goetz says auditors found that Mahler used the account for personal and family travel.

Goetz says Mahler used $2,697 in credits and $1,512 in miles without UA permission.

Goetz says Mahler repaid the university and said she mixed up personal account information with the university travel account.



Online court records do not indicate that she’s represented by an attorney.
