An employee of a business on the 9800 block of New Albany Road was cited for theft after allegedly of taking money from the cash register on four occasions, according to the New Albany Police Department.

Officers arrived at the store at 4:38 p.m. May 10 when police spoke with a resource-protection investigator who was in the process of firing the employee.

The employee is accused of stealing $975.99 total Feb. 20 and May 6, although he is suspected of also raiding the till May 8 and 9. It is unclear how much was taken at that time, the resource-protection investigator told police.
