A Salem woman is accused of stealing about $100 from her Greensburg employer while the store was closed and from a can containing donations to the Westmoreland County Humane Society, Greensburg police said.

Security cameras allegedly caught the suspect, Jacqueline Kromka, 31, using a key to enter Canine Confections at 420 E. Pittsburgh St., at 7 p.m. Sept. 10, about two hours after it had closed. Kromka allegedly was seen on the cameras taking $80 set aside for use when the store opened the following day, and about $20 from another part of the store and the donation can.

Kromka was arrested when she came to work on Sept. 11, police said.

She was charged with theft and arraigned before Greensburg District Judge Christine Flanigan, who released her on $30,000 unsecured bond, pending a preliminary hearing set for Sept. 20.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
