A Roberts, WI, woman has been charged with stashing more than $3,000 in her pants while working as a cashier at a Woodbury store in November.
Jacquelyn Sue Freeman, 53, is charged with felony theft, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Surveillance video showed Freeman, working as a cashier, concealing “large stacks of cash” in her pants on both days, and leaving the store with the cash.
Loss prevention employees confronted Freeman about the incidents, and Freeman admitted taking cash from the register, according to the complaint. She claimed that she took only two $100 bills on one occasion, but employees pointed out that her story was inconsistent with the surveillance video.
Freeman, who was released from custody on her promise to make all future court appearances, is scheduled to make an initial appearance on the charge Dec. 26 in Washington County District Court.
