IDAHO FALLS — An Idaho Falls woman convicted of forgery has now pleaded guilty to larceny after she stole over $2,000 from her employer.
Sierra Paige Snarr, 23, admitted to her supervisors that she stole money from Wells Fargo on 17th Street and Holmes Avenue on Dec. 1, 2016, according to court documents obtained by EastIdahoNews.com.
Snarr was confronted with the fact that her cash drawer had significant sums of money missing since she started working at the bank in October 2016. The supervisor who confronted her said Snarr apologized and had a written statement where she blamed the theft on her health and mounting bills. Snarr also admitted to falsifying her bank balancing records in an attempt to conceal the theft, documents state.
Snarr told police she would take the money directly from the cash drawer and replace it with money from stolen cash deposits. She said she would take money deposited by The Dollar Tree because they made more than one deposit a day and it would make it more difficult for her to be detected.
Wells Fargo terminated Snarr and bank managers told police they lost at least $2,500 as of result of Snarr’s criminal activity.
According to court records, Snarr was convicted in April 2017 for forgery after committing credit card fraud at The Roadway Inn, her previous employer. She is also facing a burglary charge for an incident in February 2017.
Snarr will be sentenced Jan. 14 by District Judge Dane H. Watkins Jr. at the Bonneville County Courthouse.
