DECATUR — Police said a 58-year-old Walmart employee was caught on camera stealing $1,140 from the store's registers.
A signed police affidavit said officers were called to Walmart, 4224 N. Prospect Drive, at 5:26 p.m. on Tuesday. The store's asset protection manager told police that they discovered the employee's thefts during several audits of the registers that she manned, the affidavit said.
Surveillance footage showed the employee taking money from the registers from July 16 to Aug. 4, the affidavit said. The amounts of money that she took from each register varied from as low as $20 to $100, the affidavit said.
The employee faces a preliminary charge of theft over $500, which is subject to review by the Macon County State's Attorney's Office.
She is due in court for arraignment on Sept. 11.
