Taco Bell employee allegedly embezzles about $2,000 over two-and-a-half months

A 41-year-old female working at the westside Taco Bell was arrested Monday after her district manager alleged she'd been embezzling from the store for over two and a half months. 

Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said Jessica Robbins stole around $2,000 from Taco Bell by making false returns on items and pocketing the money. Robbins was arrested on preliminary theft charges.

The district manager told police Taco Bell obtained security camera footage showing Robbins placing cash register money in her pocket 18 different times. Pedigo said Robbin's thefts ranged from June 26 to Sept. 12.

Robbins told police another employee had told her to transfer money in her pocket in between cash drops. She denied stealing the money, claiming she always placed it back in the safe.
