Police arrested a Safeway deli employee last Friday on charges that she had taken from $3,200 to $3,500 from the cash register in her department over a period of 18 months.
Sobhana L. France, 34, was taken to Grant County jail on a second-degree theft charge.
The police report stated that France’s cash till showed shortages of $3,869 since August of 2011.
Police stated that store security cameras showed several instances when France took cash from the till.
Store officials gave police a statement signed by France admitting that she took the money for “gas money.”
France told police that she knew it was wrong to take the money and wanted to pay Safeway back.
The officer showed France the notes supplied by a Safeway employee, and dates money was taken, and the report stated that she said the information was accurate.
