$80,000 in thefts laid to Ames worker
A 48-year-old Pasadena woman has been charged with stealing between $80,000 and $90,000 over a three-year period from the Ames Department store in the 8700 block of Ritchie Highway, county police said.
Mary Elizabeth Carter of the 8400 block of Maryland Road is accused of making false transactions on cash returns and pocketing the money she received, police said. The thefts occurred between March 1991 and Feb. 2, 1994, when Ms. Carter was arrested.
An Ames employee who claims to have seen one of the fake transactions alerted the store's security, police said. Security personnel then conducted an investigation and contacted county police.
