Convenience Store Employee Steals From Her Own Store | VideoEvan Kruegel | 1/24/2013
"Ms. Winters was given the duty of handling deposits at the Kum & Go store on occasions. She subsequently took two separate deposits, all cash, and failed to deposit the money,” said Detective Ryan Zimmerman.
Police say the thefts happened over a two day period, but they went unnoticed until the corporate office realized a sizeable chunk of money was missing. Once they realized what had happened, they were easily able to trace the missing cash back to Winters.
"You don`t get away with that. Basically instead of making the deposit in the bank, you take the money elsewhere and hopefully no one notices. But when you start stealing someone`s deposits from the store, they are going to eventually notice,” said Zimmerman.
Store management declined to comment on why Winters was given so much trust in depositing the cash. Police say this technically is a form of embezzlement, but Winters is being charged with a Class B Felony Theft of Property. She’s being held in the Williams County Correctional Facility on $10,000 bond
