Barksdale Group Admin Assistant Accused Of Theft From Firm

from the what-trade-secrets? dept

An admin assistant from the Barksdale Group was recently arrested for stealing money and secrets. Apparently, she used the corporate credit card to buy all sorts of stuff for herself, including clothes, furniture, pots and pans, and a cruise. This went on over more than a year. What I want to know is how come no one noticed these charges during that time period? When she was finally caught, she was fired. After that, she snuck back into the firm and apparently downloaded “trade secrets” onto a disk. Those secrets are apparently worth $1.5 million. What the hell could they have in terms of “trade secrets” that are worth that much?
