SALEM, Mass. (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a North Andover woman on larceny and other charges for allegedly stealing more than $1.7 million from her employer and using the money for vacations, luxury vehicles and furniture.

Authorities allege that while the office manager for Diamond Ironworks from 2007 until 2012, 44-year-old Dorothy Giard used company funds to pay personal credit card bills and stole through unauthorized charges to corporate credit cards, then falsified company records to cover her tracks. Diamond Ironworks is a steel fabricator in Lawrence.

Authorities say she spent more than $114,000 in air travel to destinations including Las Vegas and London; $20,000 toward a Lincoln and a Mercedes Benz; $20,000 in spa services; and $13,000 in designer products.

A phone message was left at a listing for Giard.
