WYMT News reports

Laurel County Deputies arrested a woman Wednesday who they say stole $5,487.60 from a restaurant in London.

Deputies believe former Fiesta Mexicana worker Crystal Lynn Caldwell stole the money from the restaurant over a period of time.

“I think she used an old payroll stub from the restaurant and got the routing numbers and proceeded to take money that wasn’t hers,” Laurel County Sheriff’s Public Information Officer Gilbert Acciardo said.

Acciardo told WYMT Caldwell used the money to pay rent, make car payments and pay other bills and credit cards off.
