Charges Reduced for Three Employees Accused of Stealing Thousands from Store

Prosecutors in Idaho Falls, Idaho, reduced charges as part of plea agreements for three TJ Maxx employees accused of stealing thousands of dollars of merchandise.

Amended charging documents show Lissette Galvan, 18, Sonia Castro, 20 and Angel Cisneros-Ambers, 19, are charged with misdemeanor petit theft for their alleged involvement in the scheme, unraveled by the company’s district loss prevention manager in Utah. The trio was originally charged with felony grand theft after the employees admitted to management and Bonneville County Sheriff deputies to stealing or helping steal items over several months. The exact amount taken remains unknown but could be upwards of $6,000, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Galvan, Castro and Cisneros-Ambers were scheduled for preliminary hearings on Wednesday to determine if prosecutors had enough evidence to move the previously felony cases to the district court. The plea agreements reducing the charges came before the hearing. Since the three are now charged with misdemeanors, the cases will stay at the magistrate level… East Idaho News
