Golden Pantry cashier "voids" felonious amount of purchases


Thanks to a security camera right above the cash register, the general manager at the downtown Golden Pantry was able to detect a pattern of theft among one of her employees. 

That employee – Linda Ruth Wise, 20 – ultimately was arrested for felony theft by taking, meaning that the threshold was at least $1,500. 

Wise essentially is accused of ringing up costumers, "giving the customer the proper change, then waiting until the customer left (and) voiding the transaction on the register and pocketing the money for herself."

Added the incident report: "(An officer) then made contact with Wise who stated 'I have been going through some tough times.'"

The manager began with the Jan. 31 footage and worked back to the beginning of January, added the incident report.
