The Cadiz woman who was arrested yesterday afternoon and charged with embezzling over 800 dollars from the Hopkinsville Lowes was also investigated while an employee of another Lowes store.
The arrest card for 32-year old Angelina Clark of Cadiz says $802.88 was allegedly stolen from the Hopkinsville store using an item return scheme between Clark and another female suspect, who police say was not an employee of Lowes.
A lengthy investigation by Lowes loss prevention turned up that Clark and the other suspect would return items for more money than what they were worth or that Clark would issue cash for a return on an item she didn’t have.
On at least one occasion, the other suspect was allegedly given cash for the item and still allowed to leave the store with the merchandise. Police say the transactions were captured on video and that the most recent incidents happened on February 8th and 11th.
Clark had previously been employed at the Paducah Lowes and is under investigation for similar incidents reportedly totaling $9,000 there.
