A former employee of McDonalds in Smithville has been charged with theft for allegedly cashing paychecks she had already deposited.
34 year old Jeri Beckham is facing three counts of theft under $500. She is under a $4,500 bond and will be in court on April 24.
According to Smithville Police, Beckham allegedly took advantage of a service called Mobile Deposit to deposit three of her paychecks into her bank account, by simply taking a picture of the checks with a mobile phone. Once deposited, Beckham then allegedly took the actual paychecks and cashed them at Food Lion.
The amounts of the checks were for $438.68 on January 2; $388.78 on January 21; and $200.98 on February 15.
The case was investigated by Corporal Travis Bryant.
