NASHUA, N.H. (AP) – Three women who took turns dressing as the Easter Bunny to pose for photos with kids at a Nashua mall have been charged with stealing money from the portrait company.

Police say the women, who were arrested over the Memorial Day weekend, stole more than $3,500 in payments in late March at the Pheasant Lane Mall. They worked for a company called the Noerr Programs.

Police Sgt. Andrew Lavoie said at one point, the women unplugged their credit card machine so customers would have to pay in cash.

Arrested were Kari Zeger, 20, and Dyanna Seavey and Julie Carder, both 19. They are from Nashua.

The company called police when an audit revealed the missing money.
