Local Target employee arrested for in-store theft


An employee at a local Target has been arrested for stealing from her employer in December of 2012. Christal Valdez has been charged with theft of over $1,500 and under $20,000.

Loss prevention investigators at the Target on the 1500 block of Bosque Blvd. had suspected several employees of theft. Valdez is accused of ringing items up incorrectly, giving away gift cards and loading credit cards.

This is the fourth employee from the Target to be arrested for theft this year. Rosario Milagros Maldonado, Tasheka Deanna Amos and Devonte Rayshun Jones were all arrested on charges of the same nature out of the same store.

In all three cases, loss prevention officers inside the store developed leads and collected evidence in the case that allowed Waco detectives to make arrests. Police have not confirmed if these incidents are connected.
