Plaistow town planner arrested on fraud charges
PLAISTOW - The planner for town of Plaistow was arrested on Tuesday.
Plaistow Police arrested Leigh Komornick on two separate cases. One case is related to a complaint from the Plaistow Fish and Game Club regarding trespassing. The other is related to an investigation initiated by the Town after evidence of potential wrongdoing was brought to light.
The charges include 19 counts of identity fraud, 19 counts of forgery, 19 counts of computer-related crimes and one count of criminal trespassing.
Plaistow Town Manager Sean Fitzgerald said he was saddened by Komornick's apparent breach of the public trust.
"While I value and appreciate the contributions that Ms. Kormornick has made over her years of service, employees will be held accountable for breaches of the public trust," Fitzgerald said.
Komornick's bail was set at $20,000, and she will appear in the Plaistow District Court on Dec. 22, 2014 for arraignment on the charges.
