Waynesboro woman faces theft charge

June 28, 1997

A 20-year-old Waynesboro, Pa., woman, charged with stealing more than $10,000 from her former employer, was released Thursday on personal recognizance.

Amy Nicole Davis, of 475 N. Church St., is charged with one count of theft by scheme, according to Hagerstown City Police Detective Mark Renner.

An investigation was begun when Christopher Gist, a co-owner of Battery One, reported that money was missing from the business at 1101 Virginia Ave., Hagerstown.

A cursory check revealed that figures shown on bank deposits didn't agree with daily sales tickets and cash from the drawer, police reports said.

Gist told Renner that Davis had been employed at Battery One for about a year when he discovered the shortages. Gist also said that Davis had responsibility for making bank deposits as part of her job description.

An audit was done on the firm's books from Dec. 10, 1996, through May 23, 1997, Renner said. The shortage was found to be $10,274.75, court records said.

The maximum penalty for theft by scheme is 15 years in prison.
