From The Plattsmouth Journal, “A woman who embezzled $15,000 from the Plattsmouth Hy-Vee grocery store last year entered a plea in her case Monday morning.
La Vista resident Lisa M. Smith, 38, pled no contest to a Class IV felony of theft by taking-$1,500 to $5,000 during an appearance in Cass County District Court. The state agreed to reduce its original Class IIA felony charge of theft-unlawful taking more than $5,000 in exchange for her plea.
Palm told the court a Plattsmouth police detective went to the Plattsmouth Hy-Vee on Sept. 30 to investigate a report of embezzlement. The detective met members of Hy-Vee’s corporate financial loss prevention team at the store. The detective learned Smith had told the Hy-Vee employees that she had taken money from the business.”
