Employee Arrested for Theft of Nearly $4,000

A Kroger employee in Peoria, Illinois, was arrested for stealing nearly $4,000 from the North Sterling Avenue location. The 19-year-old cashier had only been working at the grocery for two weeks before the incident was reported, according to a Peoria Police Report.
