A Puslinch female has been arrested in connection with a large alleged theft from her Guelph employer, say Guelph police.

In January of this year, Guelph police were contacted by officials from a south end business regarding an internal theft. It is believed an employee processed more than 80 product returns between November, 2020, and mid-January, crediting her own debit card for the returns. The total loss to the company is approximately $16,500. The employee was terminated once the theft was uncovered.

Following a lengthy investigation, a 20-year-old Puslinch female was arrested this week and charged with theft over $5,000. She will appear in a Guelph court Dec. 7, 2021.
