Schenectady woman arrested after neglecting her duties to care for emergency COVID equipment and collecting overtime she did not earn

A woman who worked for the New York State Department of Transportation as a resident engineer has been arrested.

Nancy Connolly was arrested after she did not go to work at a warehouse filled with COVID medical equipment during 2020 as well as collecting on overtime she did not earn.

The employee from Schenectady neglected to complete her duties of overseeing the receiving, storing and shipping of lifesaving medical equipment during the COVID crisis. She would leave or not show up at all for hours.


Connolly’s job was to be the staging manager at Colonie’s Jupiter warehouse on nights and weekends.

Some of the equipment she failed to take care of were ventilators, PPE and other incredibly important materials.

The job was essential and could not be completed remotely.

In June the former resident engineer collected $2,265 for overtime she did nor work on June 7, 20, and 21.

Connolly’s charges are grand larceny, offering a false instrument of filing, and official misconduct. She was arraigned in Colonie Town Court.
