FORT MILL — A Fort Mill woman seen on video stealing money from a McDonalds safe this week told deputies she took the money because she needed to buy school supplies for her children, authorities say.
On Thursday deputies went to the McDonalds on S.C. 160 after a manager reported that Teresa Ann Myers, 35, took $100 out of the safe a day earlier, according to a York County Sheriffs report.
Surveillance footage showed Myers sitting in the office beside the open company safe as she counted her drawer at the end of her shift, the report states. Myers kept looking out of the office and up at the video camera.
She took $100 from the safe and concealed it, the report states. The manager realized what happened when noticing that the money in the safe was short during an audit.
The manager spoke with Myers, who denied taking the money even after she was shown the video, the report states. Deputies later spoke with Myers, who told them she took a $100 bill out of the safe because she had to buy school supplies for her children.
Deputies issued a warrant on Myers, charging her with breach of trust. She turned herself in on Friday, but was released on a $470 personal recognizance bond.
A family member at Myers home declined to comment.
