Girard woman suspected of stealing from her employer

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Youngstown Police Department  has issued a warrant for the arrest of a Girard woman accused of stealing from her employer.

Alicea Reese, 45, is being charged with alleged theft and writing bad checks from her former employer, Schultz Towing & Recovery.

Reese was hired in May of 2012, and her boss, Greg Shultz, says in a police report that in the first month of her employment receipts were missing. 

Shultz says the receipts were handled by Reese, but that they thought it was a mistake that would be corrected with training.

Since that discovery, over $9,500 in cash has been taken, a $100 propane tank was charged to the company and unaccounted for, and four receipt books have gone missing, all believed to be taken from the suspect.

She also wrote two personal checks for $5,000 each.

Shultz says in the report that some of the receipt books have been located, and $850 has been deducted from Reese's paycheck.

However, Reese stopped going to work at the company nearly three weeks before the police report was made. Police say the suspect is still at large, and is believed to be driving around in a black, four door, 2006 Chevy.
