A Walmart loss prevention manager has been charged with breach of trust and fraud after police say she embezzled more than $10,000 of the stores money.
Last month, an asset protection manager at the Walmart on Dave Lyle Boulevard told police he had been conducting an internal investigation into another asset protection manager, according to a Rock Hill police report.
He told police he found that the other manager had created fictitious refunds and routed the money to a prepaid MasterCard, the report states.
The investigating manager found six fraudulent transactions totaling more than $10,000 and gave detectives video evidence and copies of the transactions.
The bogus refunds were credited to an employee credit card that is primarily used by Walmarts corporate office to deposit pay into employee bank accounts, said Rock Hill Police Detective Keith Dugan.
The credit card company monitoring those transactions noticed that too much money was being deposited into in the other managers account, Dugan said.
The company contacted Walmarts corporate investigators, who matched the dates of the transactions with in-store video of the manager making refunds.
Andrea Rodgers, 33, was charged with breach of trust and financial transaction card fraud. She turned herself in on Monday and posted $6,000 bond.
Rodgers had worked at Walmart since 2008. She had been working at the Dave Lyle Walmart as an asset protection manager for nearly a year, Dugan said.
