Three Dollar General employees arrested

Three Dollar General employees were arrested on Dec. 29 on felony larceny by employee charges.

Amber Ellis, 28, Sarah Walker, 37, and Ricky Jayne, 25, all from West End, were employees at the West End Dollar General store on Highway 211 near Juniper Lake Road.

According to the Moore County Sheriff’s Office, it was discovered by the corporate office of Dollar General that the three employees were allegedly stealing from the store. They are accused of stealing just under $10,000 in cash and $5,000 in merchandise.

According to court documents, the thefts were from Sept. 1, 2022, through Oct. 24, 2022. Each employee is being charged with one count of felony larceny by employee.

All three suspects were placed in the Moore County Detention Center, and each was given a $5,000 secured bond. Since the arrests, the three have posted bail. Their first court appearance was on Jan. 4, and all three cases were continued until March 20.

Sandhills Sentinel reached out to Dollar General’s public relations department for a statement but has not received a call back at this time.

Defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
