According to College Station police, in early March an officer was called to the store where an asset protection specialist for requested the officer speak with a 22-year-old woman. The specialist explained that he had examined transaction documents, which revealed the employee had been putting store money on her own credit card. Police said the woman would write down the transaction number of a customer's purchase, then later enter the purchase information in the store computer and list it as a return. She would then collect the money from the return for herself, authorities said.

Police said the woman admitted she had done this over the course of four days, taking about $887 from the store. A warrant was later administered for her arrest, and she was taken into custody this week.

The woman is charged with theft of more than $750, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and $4,000 in fines. She was released from the Brazos County Jail on $4,000 bond.
