Authorities say a loss prevention officer at Kohl’s Department store was caught on surveillance video stealing from the Klumac Road store. The Salisbury Police charged Rebecca Lynn Rodgers, 43, of the 100 block of Browns Farm Road, Salisbury, with felony larceny by employee.
She was arrested Tuesday around 12:30 p.m. at the store, but officials say the incident occurred last month. On May 13, loss prevention saw Rodgers on video taking two shirts, together valued at just under $100, remove the tags inside the loss prevention office and put them into her purse. A report said Rodgers placed the items into her purse at the end of her shift and walked out of the store. The items were not recovered. The incident was brought to the attention of the store by another store employee.
Rodgers has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $1,500 secured bond.
