A Nesquehoning woman faces theft and related charges.

Constance Fisher, 58, of 237 Stock St., was charged by borough Officer Timothy Wuttke with theft by unlawful taking or disposition and receiving stolen property.

According to an affidavit of probable cause on March 13 Officer Steven Homanko was dispatched to the Kovatch Mobile Equipment Corp. for a reported theft. Homanko learned that, over a period of time, employees had been missing money. Kovatch had set up cameras to catch the thief.

On March 9 the cameras showed a security guard who works for Vanak Security Agency, assigned to the corporation, allegedly taking money. The guard was identified as Fisher, and she was brought to the police station to be interviewed.

He asked her what was going on, and she said, referring to herself, "I think this lady has a problem."

Fisher said she was assigned by Vanak to work four days a week at Kovatch. As part of her job, she had access to numerous buildings on the property, and was required to do a "walk-through" of them.

While doing this, she admitted to having taken $8 from a candy box in the office at Plant 4.

Fisher also admitted to having taken loose change and bills from desks from other areas and buildings. She admitted to taking about $100 worth of money and food over six months. She was released with the understanding that charges would be filed.
