Rollins is employed at the store at 2100 N. Bechtle Ave. where she helped with registers and money, according to a police report. She had access to an ATM-like machine where people can use their palm print to get a cash advance for a register, the report said. Receipts are provided for each transaction so they can match up with registers at the end of a shift.

The store discovered that on six occasions when Rollins was working between June 22 and July 3 the receipts didn’t match up with registers, the report said. Three of the receipts were caught on video, the report says. Between $100 and $500 was taken from registers during those incidents for a total of about $1,925.
