  • An employee at Target, 3100 Fairlane Drive, was arrested the afternoon of Feb. 17 for embezzlement.

Another time, she went through self-checkout, and only paid for two of the three hair care products in her possession. On a third occasion, she switched tags on two items, paying significantly less than the items were worth. She also took snack foods without paying for them.
