Webb identified Ray, a former employee of the business, as a person of interest. During questioning on January 16, 2019, Detective Webb learned that Ray became upset when her employment suddenly came to an end. Ray reportedly admitted that she took multiple items from the location as she departed, including the cash.
"Some business owners don't get the police involved when they catch or have reason to believe that an employee is stealing from them; however we're pleased this wasn't the case here," stated Edwards. "We are always happy to return stolen property to the rightful owner and put the bad guy in jail." he continued.
