SANTA ANA (AP) – Orange County prosecutors say a woman who worked at the Westminster office of the Department of Motor Vehicles faces a maximum sentence of 11 years in state prison if convicted of stealing $106 in cash payments from customers.
Spokeswoman Farrah Emami says 44-year-old Rosario Casas was arrested Thursday and has been charged with 12 felony counts for four instances of alleged theft.
Casas is accused of charging customers for services, collecting cash and then voiding the transactions to pocket the cash on four occasions between July 2010 and February 2011.
Casas’ supervisor became suspicious after a customer complained that he didn’t get change from her.
Casas is being held on $25,000 bail and is due for arraignment Monday.
