Conn. Woman Accused of Retaliation Against Insurance Agent Who Fired Her

July 22, 2008

Plainville, Conn. police have arrested a Portland woman, accusing her of trying to retaliate against her former boss by having electricity cut off to his home.

Police say 33-year-old Susan Armato was fired June 25 from her job at a Glastonbury insurance agency.

Armato allegedly used a co-worker’s computer password the next day to make a request that Northeast Utilities shut off the power to her boss’s Plainville home.

Police say the utility called Armato’s boss to verify the request and discovered the call was a fake.

Armato is charged with breach of peace and using a computer to commit a crime.

She was arrested last Friday and is due back in court next week.
