NASHUA – Police said Tuesday that Osama Zghoul, a Manchester resident affiliated with the Nashua branch of a worldwide employee staffing and temp agency, has been charged with felony theft for allegedly stealing payroll funds from the agency.

Zghoul, 32, of 154 Second St., Apt. 2, was arrested Tuesday morning following a nearly four-month investigation into suspected employee theft, which police said was reported by representatives of the Nashua branch of Adecco Employee Staffing.

The charge, theft by deception – consolidation, is a Class B felony that accuses Zghoul of fraudulently taking between $1,000 and $1,500 in what police described as “payroll funds” from Adecco.
