Authorities are now reporting the total value of a theft at the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College bookstore at more than $10,000.
According to a Salisbury Police report, Angela Renea Dennis, 404 S. Clay St., a former RCCC student and campus bookstore clerk is accused of stealing books from the Salisbury campus’ bookstore.
Dennis then allegedly sold the stolen books to nearby colleges for cash, authorities said. Dennis had received $10,790 in book refunds since August 2010.
The report said Dennis placed the stolen goods in a bookbag while working and placed the bag in the restroom. Then after the store closed, she would take the bag with her.
Authorities said Dennis sold books back at Catawba College and at RCCC’s south campus for cash refunds.
The bookstores at the north and south campus are owned and operated by Barnes & Nobles.
The report said a loss prevention officer for the bookstore chain flagged the 35-year-old woman after repeated returns and notified authorities. She is estimated to have taken between 50 to 60 books.
Dennis was charged Sunday by Salisbury Police on 11 counts of felony obtaining property by false pretenses and 13 counts of felony larceny by an employee.
She was given a $10,000 bond and was in jail Friday morning.
