Video Store Clerk Lies About Robbery to Cover Up Felony Embezzlement

Posted by: on December 5, 2011

A San Rafael video store clerk who reported a robbery last month fabricated the story to hide her own theft of about $1,200, police said.

The 25-year-old Silver Screen Video clerk told police that two men dressed in black with hoods pulled over their faces robbed the Montecito Shopping Center store Nov. 9 at knifepoint, San Rafael police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher said at the time.

However, after reviewing surveillance video from neighboring businesses, police determined that no suspects matching the descriptions had been at the shopping center at any time around 10 p.m. that day, Lt. Dan Fink said.

After speaking with the clerk, police determined she had taken the money herself, Fink said. She is suspected of felony embezzlement and making a false report to a peace officer.
