Crystal Star Fortune, 53 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said she stole $125 from her employer, Town Square Store, on Old Cedartown Road.
Reports said that Fortune entered the business after hours and took $125 without permission. Police said that Fortune left a note signed by her subtracting the amount from the total amount of money that was found in an envelope she removed it from.
Police added that the money was the exact amount for a tow bill from a traffic stop that the arresting officer conducted earlier.
Fortune is charged with theft by taking.
