A Framingham teen was arrested Monday after she stole $800 in cash and gift cards from the Target department store where she worked, police said.
Alginna Jean-Pierre, 19, admitted to investigators that she stole $100 and two $50 gift cards on Monday, but denied any other thefts, police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said.
Store security called police around 10:15 p.m. They said they watched Jean-Pierre take a $100 bill and pocket it instead of putting it in the register.
Shastany said she also activated two, $50 gift cards and put them into her pocket. "Apparently, the customers were charged for the gift cards," he said.
Jean-Pierre also stole $69 in clothing, Shastany said.
A security officer said he watched Jean-Pierre steal $200 in cash and one $100 gift card on Saturday, and $100 in cash and $200 worth of gift cards on Sunday.
"She would not admit to the Saturday or Sunday thefts," Shastany said.
Jean-Pierre, of 62B Second St., was charged with larceny of more than $250.
She pleaded not guilty at her Framingham District Court arraignment yesterday. She was released without bail and is due back in court Oct. 9 for a pretrial conference.
