A cashier has resigned from the Pittsburgh police Central Records Reporting Unit -- where the public goes to pay $15 each for copies of police reports -- as an audit has found $17,000 in missing money and $60,000 in not-deposited checks.
Police aren't identifying the employee because she's yet to be charged and because they say the investigation will take several more weeks.
It began when the employee told a supervisor in November that she started stealing money in October 2011. A resulting audit found the missing money and the uncashed checks -- $10,000 of which are so old they can no longer be deposited.
The office has since bought a new cash register which tracks transactions and no longer accepts cash for police reports.
The suspected employee has worked there since 1991.
