• Former clerk accused of stealing $17K from police records office


    PITTSBURGH - A former cashier for the Pittsburgh police records office has been charged with stealing more than $15,000.

    Police said in a release Tuesday that Terri Randolph, 48, faces charges of theft by unlawful taking and failure to make required disposition of funds. She had worked for the city since 1991, but resigned last month.

    Authorities said Randolph told her supervisor about the alleged thefts last November. She admitted to stealing from Oct. 2011 through Nov. 2012.

    Randolph worked in the office where the public pays $15 each for copies of police reports. An audit found $17,000 missing and detectives found almost $15,000 in checks on Randolph’s desk that hadn't been deposited.

    The office has since bought a new cash register which tracks transactions and no longer accepts cash.

    Randolph was released on $10,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 14.
