ORLANDO (AP) - An Orlando theme park employee has been released from jail after officials say she unlawfully distributed $1 million in park tickets.
Authorities say 43-year-old Carmen Kunstorf spent the weekend in custody, charged with distributing Universal Studios tickets to park employees.
Kunstorf's job duties included handing out complimentary tickets to employees. Park officials say she is accused of handing out extra tickets to employees who previously loaned her money. An internal audit from Jan. 2007 to Jan. 2011 shows she passed out $1 million in complimentary tickets.
Court records show she admitted to park security to stealing hundreds of tickets during the past 18 months. Her arrest affidavit says she took 1,862 tickets during the weekend when the ticket office was empty. Those tickets are valued at more than $200,000.
