ATL lunchlady packed a daily lunch of $500/day for 15 years

Channel 2 Action News has learned that Fulton County school police have arrested a former cafeteria manager suspected of stealing hundreds of dollars every day for at least five years Channel 2 investigative reporter Richard Belcher says that the total amount of money stolen over a longer period could reach $1 million, based on information from arrest warrants. The alleged thefts took place at North Springs High School in north Fulton County.

A whistleblower provided video inside the North Springs cafeteria. There were four lines that each had a cash register to keep track of the money.

Standing alone was a blue cart that sold a-la-carte items for cash and never had a register.

Now, Belcher has learned that Fulton County school police obtained 10 arrest warrants for former cafeteria manager Brenda Watts.

The warrants accuse Watts of stealing $500 a day from the cafeteria.

Last spring, Belcher asked Beth Walsh, former cafeteria worker, how long the a la carte line had been running.

"At least 15 years. Up to maybe 20,” Walsh said.

The police charge that Watts stole $500 a day. That's $2,500 a week, which is a staggering $90,000 in a school year.

Over 15 years, that would be $1,350,000.






She lived in an OT acceptable house:

How the hell did she get away with $500 once let alone for 15 years?


Someone else had to be in on it. A superior.

I actually ROTFL when I saw that house. And to think the IRS wasn't the one to bust her - but they want to know if my "home office" has its own door. What jokes.

Here's what I don't get. At the end of the day, surely the a la carte cart had to turn money into somewhere. First, was there no recordkeeping system of how much sales were done? Second, let's say she just shorted the number, and said she made $100 instead of $600, wouldn't it raise an eyebrow when she was having to order more inventory at an alarmginly high rate?

Not to mention the frickin mansion she lived in while working in a school cafeteria?
