GLEN ROCK, N.J. – Glen Rock police charged a now-former employee at Kilroy’s Wonder Market with stealing nearly $12,000 from the business through bogus transactions at the register, authorities said.
Erin Grace Marciniak, 26, was released on a summons pending a March 30 first appearance in Central Judicial Municipal Court in Hackensack, Police Chief Dean Ackermann said Monday.
Detective Lucas Doney arrested Marciniak of Marlboro Road on theft charges after reviewing video from the store’s surveillance system, Ackermann said.
Owners of the store -- considered a borough institution -- said she’d taken $17,974 “over the course of a prolonged period through fraudulent transactions at her register,” the chief said.
But investigators were only able to prove $12,000 was taken, he said.
A 21-year-old woman from Hackensack is accused of writing herself a series of checks with stolen money from the dental practice she worked at, authorities said.
A motorist on crack drove onto a Glen Rock resident's lawn -- uprooting shrubs in the process -- where police found her passed out behind the wheel, authorities said.
