A former Roseboro liquor store employee is facing embezzlement charges and a stiff bond after his former bosses alleged that he was stealing from the company’s cash register for over a month.
Glenn Douglas Hines Jr., 22, of 637 Boone St., Roseboro, was charged with larceny by an employee and embezzlement Friday evening after reportedly turning himself in to authorities with the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office.
According to reports, an investigation was launched against Hines after his manager noticed money was missing from the till during his shifts at the ABC Store, located at 501 S East St., Roseboro, on July 23. The manager reportedly called investigators about the case.
After looking at surveillance video and receipts, investigators noticed that cash was missing from the register after sales were refunded allegedly by Hines, who is also believed to have deleted the sold items from the inventory.
The scheme dated back to June 2.
On Sept. 13, warrants were officially taken out for Hines’ arrest in connection with the larcenies. After talking with investigators, he turned himself in on Friday, Sept. 14 around 6 p.m.
It was unclear how much money was taken from the company.
Hines was placed under $10,000 secured bond and a trial date of Sept. 28 was set.
