DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- A woman has been charged with stealing more than $15,000 from a convenience store in Dubuque.

Police arrested Jennifer Villarreal, 33, of Dubuque on November 4 at 6:40 a.m. after she turned herself in. Villarreal had a warrant charging first-degree theft.

Police were called to Casey’s General Store at 4003 Peru Road on October 16 to investigate a theft.

Documents say Kevin Kloser, the store supervisor, said the corporate office sent a notice that three deposits from the store were never made.

The deposits from September 17, September 27 and October 6 totaled to $15,510.97.

Kloser said in documents Villarreal would have been the person in charge of the deposits, as she was scheduled as the shift manager.

Video footage showed Villarreal leaving with the bags the day after each of the deposits were due.

Villarreal’s dad gave the police the items he found in his daughter’s car, including two of the deposit slips and the store’s bank bags.

Villarreal was released on a $10,000 bond.
