A J.C. Penney employee was charged Thursday in the theft or fraudulent return of nearly $7,000 in goods.
Taylor V. Nash, 18, is charged with one count of theft.
Loss-prevention officers gave police a written confession from Nash in which she admitted she stole $3,417 in cash sales and committed $3,493 in fraudulent returns between April 2 and 12, a probable cause affidavit said.
The store had a record of the false returns and video of the thefts, court records said.
Nash was released Thursday on $2,500 bond.
