Woman allegedly places fake ads to boost salary

Wed Jun 3, 8:23 pm ET

LINCOLN, Neb. – A woman has been arrested on suspicion of theft after police say she placed fake ads in a newspaper she worked for to boost her salary. Officer Katie Flood said the woman was hired as an advertising salesperson for the Lincoln Weekly, a newspaper started in January.

Flood said the woman was paid a salary, but would earn more based on the size of each edition of the paper. Flood said the woman placed plenty of ads in the paper, but when the paper’s owner began calling businesses seeking payment for the ads, he was told no ads had been bought.

Police said the woman made up the ads to increase the paper’s size and get more money. Police said she placed $12,000 worth of fake ads in the newspaper.
