Money Taken From Tullahoma Business

Police are investigating the theft money from the Mapco Market located on Cedar Lane. According to a report by Tullahoma Police Officer Tyler Hatfield, the manager of the store reported Monday evening that an employee had taken money from the store’s safe. The manager told the officer that after the cash drawer from Sunday came up short, she reviewed the store’s security system and observed an employee removing money from the store’s safe. The video reveals, according to the police report, that the employee entered the store around 1:45 a.m. Sunday and walked to the store’s storage area to check the work schedule. She then walked toward the cash register and asked the clerk on duty to get her an energy drink. When the clerk left the area, the video shows the employee place her hand near the safe and then put her hand in her pocket.
