A Fastrip employee is charged with stealing over $18,000 in cash that was to be put in the convenience store's ATM in the last year and a half. According to affidavits of probable cause, Laura A. Hollingsworth, 54, of Exeter, is charged with felony stealing of $750 or more.
The Cassville Police Department investigated the incident after D-Carr Investments Incorporated reported on October 10 that an employee had been stealing from Fastrip in Cassville. The owners told a detective that Hollingsworth was a manager at the time and between January 2017 and September 2018, she had misappropriated funds that were to be placed into an ATM inside the store. In all, Hollingsworth allegedly stole $18,280 in cash.
Hollingsworth was booked into the Barry County Jail on October 18 and posted a $20,000 cash, corp. surety or 10 percent bond on October 19 through a bail bondsman.
