Cut Off woman arrested for stealing over $220,000 from her employer

Cut Off woman arrested for stealing over $220,000 from her employer

Rhonda Anglin, 46, was arrested recently for stealing more than $220,000 from the local business where she was employed.

In early September, detectives opened an investigation after learning Anglin had allegedly cashed several business checks written as made payable to cash.

This activity, detectives learned, occurred over the course of approximately one year dating back to October 2014.
The total amount of money stolen was $19,200.

That led to Anglin’s arrest for Felony Theft on September 8. She was released the following morning after posting $10,000 bond.

Upon completing that initial investigation, detectives urged business owners to review all financial records for any further evidence.

When they did so, they discovered discrepancies in the cash register till reports dating back to February 2014.

Anglin was in charge of checking the cash register drawers, and investigators found she had ultimately written deposit slips for less money than was actually left in the drawer. They discovered Anglin had pocketed $202,346 over the 18-month period.

During questioning Wednesday Anglin admitted to her involvement in the crime. She was arrested on the warrant and booked with Felony Theft (Greater than $25,000).

She was released Wednesday afternoon after posting $25,000 bond.
