Stealing From An Employer, Part 2

A Putnam County woman who allegedly tried to steal from both her employer and a customer has been issued a citation for theft. According to a report by Officer Brandon Tayes, 27-year-old Christina Lynn Goolsby of Brown Ridge Road, Baxter, was working as a cashier at K-Mart when a customer came through and purchased seven gift cards. Store officials claim that Goolsby rang up all seven cards, gave the customer six of them, and kept one for herself. They say she later used that card to make purchases at the store. When the customer complained, he was given a replacement card and Goolsby allegedly admitted to the theft. A similar case of employee theft was reported to police last week.
