Convenience Store Employee Stole More Than $14,000, Police Say

An employee at the Centre Hall Snappy's Convenience Store is facing charges after allegedly stealing more than $14,000 in money deposits she was responsible for making on behalf of the store.

Snappy's accounting department reported to the district store manager on Dec. 20 that a daily deposit had not been made since Dec. 11. The district manager then contacted Tracy L. Addleman, 40, who was responsible for making the daily deposits, and Addleman couldn't explain why they had not been made.

On Dec. 21, the district manager told state police that she retrieved the daily deposit prepared by Addleman, but found it was $258 short. 

When confronted by the district manager and a human resources staff member about the missing deposits, Addleman only said that she was keeping them in her car but that the money wasn't currently there, according to a criminal complaint. After being told she had one last chance to get the money, Addleman allegedly went to her car and returned with four Ziploc bags containing about $1,800 in cash. Three of the bags had deposit slips stating greater amounts than were inside the bags.

The district manager told police that in total Addleman was responsible for the loss of $14,101.22 over more than a week.

Addleman was charged with felony counts of theft by unlawful taking, theft by deception and receiving stolen property.

She was arraigned on Monday before District Judge Thomas Jordan and released on $20,000 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 21.
