Store clerk accused of conspiring theft scheme

WACO, TX (KXXV) - UPDATE: On December 18, Virginia Ramirez was sentenced to 4 years deferred adjudication probation, a $750 fine and 300 hours of community service.

A store clerk at "Liquidators" on the 1200 block of Richland Drive is accused of being involved in a conspiracy where she sold large quantity of merchandise at a small amount of money. 31-year-old Virginia Ramirez was arrested after police got a call about suspicious activity she was conducting at the store.

After investigators looked at store video and checked sales records, they believed Ramirez had a conspiracy with a group of friends to come by her checkout stand with large amounts of merchandise and sell it to them at a lower cost.

Investigators say she would pretend to ring up the items, deleting each entry right after making it, which would then result into the customer paying a few dollars. 

One case, investigators found Ramirez selling merchandise that totaled over $1,700. Police say she may have made these transactions several times between November 24 and November 28. 

Ramirez has been booked into the McLennan County Jail, and police say as the investigation continues more arrests will be made.
