Theft and property crimes: Ex-employee of drug store arrested

When New Hampshire police make an arrest on theft charges, that individual may panic and say things that prosecutors can later use against the defendant in court. Nevertheless, an arrest is by no means a finding of guilt; rather, it represents the filing of formal charges. Allegations that the person was in possession of stolen items are just that -- allegations. A lot must happen before an accused individual can be convicted of theft and property crimes.

Shortly before noon on July 29 last year, Nashua police apparently received a call from the loss-prevention manager of a drug store. Police say the manager reported alleged thefts at the store by an employee. Police arrested a 46-year-old former employee of the drug store on a recent Tuesday morning, accusing her of theft.

The woman allegedly took money that did not belong to her when she processed returned products at the store. Furthermore, she is accused of stealing merchandise from the store shelves while she was employed there. She is facing two class A felony charges of theft by unauthorized taking and theft by deception.

This woman is now on personal recognizance bail of $25,000, awaiting her scheduled arraignment on March 3. Some people in New Hampshire and elsewhere may think theft charges are not serious; however, convictions can have an adverse impact on a person's reputation and employment opportunities in the future. For this and other reasons, the most appropriate step under such circumstances is to obtain the assistance of a skilled criminal defense attorney who is experienced in handling the defense of those facing charges for theft and property crimes.
