Police: Store Clerk Steals Thousands
Dipping into the till could lead to big jail time for a Viroqua woman. 19 year-old Laura Christensen faces felony theft and forgery charges for ripping off her employer for thousands. La Crosse police say Christensen forged names on return slips at a La Crosse hardware store on the southside. Basically doing phony returns. A few hundred dollars at a time over the last several months added up fast. They figure Christensen's stolen nearly eleven thousand dollars since about January. Police say they've got videos that catch her in the act.
