A Superior woman was sentenced to 60 days in jail for stealing more than $9,000 from the convenience store she managed.
Rose Marie Williams, 42, pleaded no contest to one count felony theft in Douglas County Court Monday. She was sentenced to three years probation and 60 days in jail. She was also ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation and follow recommendations, pay $9,470.04 in restitution and court costs.
Williams stole numerous deposits from Allouez Citgo, 4202 E. Second St., while working as a manager in the spring of 2010. She was the only one with access to deposits, which were to be made daily. Williams was fired April 13 on a different matter.
After her dismissal, a security manager for Krist Oil, which owns the station, found seven deposits had not been made at the bank, six of them on the week prior to Williams' firing. The total amount missing was $9,470.74, according to the complaint.
When contacted by Superior Police, Williams said she was high on meth the week before she was fired and couldn't remember much. She told police she would just take the deposits home and put them into her safe instead of going to the bank.
Williams just let the money pile up until she was fired. At that point, she told officers, she spent the money on drugs with the hope of selling some of them.
The Superior woman also pleaded no contest to one count felony delivery of meth stemming from a separate incident in May. A second count of delivery of meth was dismissed.
Williams sold meth to an informant working with Superior police during a drug buy in a restaurant parking lot. When interviewed by officers, she admitted using meth daily and said she got it from her source "on the front," which means she got it without paying anything up front, and turned in the money after it sold. Williams also told officers she had been unemployed for a number of months.
She was sentenced to three years probation, concurrent to the theft case. Conditions of probation include six months jail consecutive to the theft sentence, $700 restitution to be paid to the Superior Police Department, undergo a chemical dependency evaluation and follow any recommendations, and pay a $100 fine plus court costs and surcharge.
