The owner reviewed security surveillance footage and determined an employee must have taken the money, according to the statement of probable cause. He thought it might have been Tressler, according to the statement, and when he confronted her, she said she had taken it. The owner reviewed footage from some of Tressler's shifts and watched her take the money, according to the statement.
Tressler stole between $500 and $1,200 from a cash register each shift, according to the statement.
Tressler told the trooper investigating the case that she would leave the register open after a transaction and take a couple of $20 bills and sometimes a $50 or $100 bill, according to the statement.
She told the trooper that she took the money because she was behind on her rent and electric bills, and her husband was out of work due to an injury, according to the statement. Tressler allegedly said her actions were unwise but she acted out of desperation and she planned to pay back the owner, according to the statement.
A preliminary trial date has been set for Tressler on April 26.
