Cafeteria Manager Steals close to 1M from Children’s Lunch Money
FULTON COUNTY, Ga. – Channel 2 Action News has learned that Fulton County school police have arrested a former cafeteria manager suspected of stealing hundreds of dollars every day for at least five years. Channel 2 investigative reporter Richard Belcher says that the total amount of money stolen over a longer period could reach $1 million, based on information from arrest warrants. The alleged thefts took place at North Springs High School in north Fulton County.
Channel 2 Action News broke the story last spring, when a cafeteria worker told us her manager regularly ran a cash-only line for which there were no records. Now, police charge it was a long-running and extremely profitable theft scheme.
A whistleblower provided video inside the North Springs cafeteria. There were four lines that each had a cash register to keep track of the money. Standing alone was a blue cart that sold a-la-carte items for cash and never had a register. Now, Belcher has learned that Fulton County school police obtained 10 arrest warrants for former cafeteria manager Brenda Watts. The warrants accuse Watts of stealing $500 a day from the cafeteria.
