A former Dallas police employee was accused of allegedly stealing nearly $1,500 in a span of four months.
Jacquelin Holstein, 28, has been indicted on a state jail felony, which is punishable by a maximum of two years in prison, after being charged with one count of theft by a public servant.
The theft was discovered after a supervisor found discrepancies from deposits made by Holstein in an audit conducted in October. A total of at least $1,488 was missing from May to September of 2012.
According to police investigators, Holstein confessed to the allegations, saying that she was using the money for her own personal means. She has since resigned from her position.
