Loss Prevention Manager Found Guilty of Stealing $230K

Isn’t it ironic? Don’t ya think?

In the ultimate irony, someone responsible for preventing theft was a thief herself. Emily Tallman was the loss prevention manager for a Fred Meyer store in Portland, Oregon. Tallman was found guilty of stealing $230,000 from the self-checkout machines. She would enter the store during non-business hours, block security cameras and lift cash from the machines. The thefts happened between January and June of 2017.

Fred Meyer noticed the large amounts of missing money. Tallman didn’t know why the cash disappeared. Investigators were able to determine that it was Tallman taking the money. She will be sentenced on April 12th. Have you ever stolen anything from work? Did you get away with it?
