A Salisbury woman faces felony charges after authorities say she took beer from the Woodleaf convenience store where she worked.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Rhonda Dawn Burgess, 40, with felony larceny by employee. She has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.

Burgess was charged Thursday, but officials say the incident occurred in November. The owner of Woodleaf BP reported to sheriff’s officials that an employee stole Great American Malt Beverage, valued at $5, from the store’s beer cave.

The owner said Burgess admitted taking the beer, but told him a customer paid for it. She resigned from the job, a report said.

Burgess has been convicted of felony trafficking heroin/opium, manufacturing marijuana, felony drug possession and misdemeanor child abuse. She was also convicted of driving while license revoked in October 1994, January 1995, December 1995, March 1997 and March 1998.

In 2010, Burgess and her husband, Ronald Burgess, were charged after officials found a 6-year-old boy at their home in horrible living conditions. The child also had access to illegal substances. Authorities seized more than 200 marijuana plants from inside and outside of their home.
