FARMINGTON — Police said a Big Apple employee is charged with stealing nearly $5,000 from the store at 354 Wilton Road store this month.

Lisa Parent, 48, of Jay was arrested Monday on a warrant charging theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, Farmington Detective Darin Gilbert said.

A district manager for the store, owned by C.N. Brown, called the Farmington Police Department after money was missing from the store on two separate days this month, Gilbert said. The amount came to just under $5,000, he said.

“All the evidence led to the conclusion that she was responsible for it,” he said.

The evidence was presented to the District Attorney’s Office and an arrest warrant was ordered by the court.

Gilbert and Sgt. Eddie Hastings arrested Parent and took her to Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington. Her bail is set at $8,000 cash, a jail officer said.
