A Unity Township woman is accused of stealing $1,346 from the Salem Township Subway restaurant where she worked on New Year’s Day and gambling away some of the stolen money at a casino in Pittsburgh.

Nicole Marie Inks, 35, of Whitney allegedly used her key to enter the Subway at 3:15 a.m. Jan. 1, then went to the Rivers Casino on Pittsburgh’s North Side, according to state police at Kiski Valley.

She allegedly gambled $150 she took from the cash box and safe at the Subway restaurant along Sheffield Drive, just off Route 66

Police said she returned to the Subway at about 8:30 a.m. and used the door key to enter the restaurant and take $1,196 from a safe.

Video surveillance was used to identify Inks, who confessed to the theft, police said.

Inks is charged with two felony counts of burglary and two misdemeanor counts of theft and receiving stolen property. She was arraigned Thursday before District Judge Cheryl Peck-Yakopec and released on $5,000 unsecured bond.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
