ROCKY HILL, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut woman is facing charges after authorities say she fraudulently collected more than $12,000 in unemployment compensation benefits.

The Chief State’s Attorney’s Office says Sylwia Bagan, of Rocky Hill, was arrested Wednesday. She is charged with one count each of larceny in the first degree by defrauding a public community and unemployment compensation fraud.

Authorities say the 37-year-old Bagan under-reported the wages she earned, allowing her to fraudulently collect approximately $12,363 in unemployment benefits from January 2012 through December 2013.

Bagan was released on a $10,000 non-surety bond. She is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 2.

It’s unclear whether Bagan has a lawyer. Online public records didn’t list a phone number for Bagan.
