A 33-year-old Palmdale woman was arrested Friday after she was accused of stealing a delivery package from her own workplace, according to law enforcement officials.
The arrest stems from a reported misdemeanor at approximately 1 p.m. on the 28000 block of Chase Place, said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
“It was reported loss prevention was detaining an employee regarding a theft,” said Arriaga. ”Upon arrival, deputies learned an employee was observed not delivering a package, despite showing a delivery had been made.”
The woman was taken into custody and booked on suspicion of embezzlement of property by a carrier.
“She was booked into the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station and subsequently released on citation to appear in court on a later date,” Arriaga said.
