Brought to my attention by my colleague back in Athens:

Arrest: On April 12, security at Wal-Mart called deputies about an employee, June Elliott, 49, of Bethlehem, whom they discovered was allegedly ringing up items at the checkout for cheaper prices for her own benefit. Elliott told deputies that she was told when she took the job that she would be full time and would receive benefits. However, she did not get that job status and needed money to pay her doctor’s bills, so she ran through items cheaper to save herself money. She was arrested for theft.

Good thing they’re cracking down on employee “theft.” How else are they going to be able to provide soccer moms with their bottles of Pantene at 50 cents below the price at the local drugstore (that’s probably going out of business)?
