Police: Worker failed to deposit $10,000 from Donegal McDonald’s
State police on Friday arrested a Cambria County woman on accusations she took $10,844 from a Westmoreland County McDonald’s restaurant where she worked, according to court papers.
Cheryl Anne Dahmen, 33, is charged with two counts of theft.
Troopers said the Donegal Township restaurant owner reported Jan. 24 that three days worth of deposits had not been taken to a bank. Dahmen told investigators she forgot to make the deposits and either lost the money or it was stolen, troopers reported. Police said the suspect reported she planned to try to cover up the missing money by altering deposit slips and replace it later.
Dahmen is free on $10,000 unsecured bond. A March 1 preliminary hearing is set.
Dahmen did not have an attorney listed in court records. She did not immediately return a message.
