CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – An employee of a Dollar General store faces larceny charges after being accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the business.
According to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, authorities responded to a Johns Island Dollar General in reference to reoccurring thefts from the store.
The store’s district manager told deputies that Zybelle Walters-Perez (27), an employee of the store, stole nearly $5,200 from the cash register during her shifts.
Walters-Perez would steal the money by voiding cash transactions, placing the money underneath the register, then collecting it when her shift ends, the manager told deputies.
Store video footage “clearly shows the theft take place,” after occurring for almost a month, a report read.
Walter-Perez admitted to stealing between $500 and $1000.
She was placed on a trespass notice and arrested for grand larceny.
