Theft involves the unlawful taking of another's property and is one of the highest invasions of property rights. In some cases, a person you know and trust may take what is rightfully yours without any warning or indication. The most vulnerable victims of theft crimes often are employers who trust their employees to carry out their jobs honestly. Employees handle large sums of money and products vital to the flow of business, and when that trust has been broken through employee theft the legal consequences are severe.

The suspect was arrested, and was released on $10,000 bail while awaiting criminal prosecution.
