Laurens Woman Charged In Convenience Store Theft
LAURENS – A Laurens woman, Kimberly Ann Card, 23, was arrested for stealing $7,007.42 from and causing false entries in a Laurens convenience store’s business records, sheriff’s deputies report.
The general manager of the corporation contacted District Attorney John Muehl. The D.A. referred the case to the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division for investigation.
Investigation revealed that over three and a half months between the end of May through the beginning of September, Card made false product returns in the business records and stole the money, according to the deputies’ report.
She was arrested Saturday, arraigned by Hartwick Town Judge Maria Folts and remanded to the county jail on $7,500 bail returnable next month.
Card, who is presently on misdemeanor probation for a petit larceny conviction in the Town of Morris Court, also faces a violation of probation. If convicted of the new charges she faces up to seven years in prison, plus one year for the probation violation.
