Cashier suspected of stealing $20,000

Jennifer Clark

A 19-year-old grocery store cashier confessed to embezzling at least $20,000 in a scheme involving coupons, according to a Grand Junction police arrest affidavit.

Jennifer Clark, of Grand Junction, was advised Friday by County Court Judge Bruce Raaum on a possible charge of felony theft. She was released from the Mesa County Jail after signing out on a personal-recognizance bond.

Clark worked at Albertsons, 1830 N. 12th St., from July 2013 through this month, the affidavit said.

The exact amount of money allegedly stolen was redacted in the version of the affidavit released Friday by Grand Junction police. Jail records indicate Clark was booked Thursday on suspicion of theft between $20,000 and $100,000.

“Over the course of this time, Clark would ring coupon specials into the cash register, and in turn take the currency for the discount out of the cash register for her own personal use,” the affidavit said. “Each of these transactions was documented, and Clark signed each of the receipts from the transactions, acknowledging she stole the money.”

The affidavit said Clark confessed the theft and scheme first to store employees, and again to a police officer.

“She stated that through the course of the aforementioned time frame, the dollar amounts became larger due to her not being caught,” the affidavit said.

Formal charges are expected to be filed later this month.
