— Three Rock Hill Walmart employees were charged with breach of trust Tuesday after police say they allowed customers and co-workers to take items without paying for them.

Police were called to the Old York Road Walmart in the Newport area after the loss prevention manager reported that Latoya Jennings, 20; Chari Griffin, 19; and Larricia Agers, also 19, had been accused of collectively cheating the store out of more than $800 within the past three months.

According to the manager, Jennings had been caught on store video scanning items and then voiding out the transactions so customers didn’t pay for their merchandise, according to a Rock Hill Police report. From February to March, Jennings is believed to have given away more than $300 worth of store merchandise to customers.

The manager also reported that Griffin, 19, allowed co-workers to take products without paying for them in the span of a month, also giving away about $315, another report states.

A third employee, Agers, 19, was arrested after police say she failed to charge several items on five separate occasions between January and March, cheating the store out of nearly $250, police documents state.

Agers and Griffin were released from jail Wednesday morning on personal recognizance bonds, but Jennings was still in jail on a bond.
