Woman steals bundles of cash from Dairy Queen

ALBERT LEA, Minn. (FOX 47) – A woman managing a Dairy Queen in Albert Lea was charged with stealing cash from the store’s safe.

Jessica Hayes, Waseca, was reportedly caught on camera by a Dairy Queen surveillance video system on June 5, 2017.

She was seen entering the store around 5:44 a.m. and waited there for four minutes. She then took two bundles of cash out of the safe and walked out with the money.

A criminal complaint said Hayes admitted to taking about $2,600. The complaint said she thought it was stupid but still did it anyway.

Hayes told an investigator she used it to pay her electric bill because it was about to be shut off.

She was charged with felony theft on Monday in Albert Lea.
