A Brooklyn charter bus company sales director stole more than $1 million in amusement park tickets, said prosecutors on Wednesday. 

Rosemarie Bader, 51, allegedly used her Best Trails and Travel Corporation in Red Hook credit card to buy 36,000 Six Flags Great Adventure and Dorney Park tickets for herself in New York. 

Authorities claim that the Staten Island native – whose job included coordinating amusement park packages for the company’s clients – received the tickets she ordered and stockpiled them in a safe under her desk that she only had access to.

The tickets were redeemed at two of the parks but it is unknown if Bader sold them for cash.

The scam, which ran from January 2014 to November 2016, ended when company investigators figured out that Bader ordered more tickets than the buses had seats, prosecutors said. She was fired in October.

She was arraigned on grand larceny and possession of stolen property charges on Wednesday, and ordered held on $500,000 bond or $250,000 cash bail. 

If convicted at trial, Bader could face between eight to 25 years in prison. 

‘This defendant allegedly engaged in a long-term and large-scale fraud scheme, stealing over $1 million in property from her employer, a local business in Brooklyn, which entrusted her with its credit card,’ Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said in a statement.

‘We intend to hold the defendant fully accountable for her egregious acts.’
