Store manager allegedly took $108,880 from ATM

Rostraver Township Police have accused Tonya Le Burich, 31, of 118 Emerald St., Clarksville, of taking $108,880 from an automated teller machine in the store that she managed.

Police charged Burich with two felony counts each theft by failure to make required disposition of funds received and receiving stolen property; and one misdemeanor count of tampering with records or identification. Burich managed the BP-BFS gas station on Route 51 from March 2000 to this month.

She was responsible for the cash deposits that went into the machine, police Chief Greg Resetar said.

Resetar said the company’s vice president informed police Jan. 11 about numerous unauthorized withdrawals from the machine’s account.

“She admitted to taking money from the machine … between $500 and $2,000, two to three times a month,” Resetar said of Burich.

Burich was arraigned before District Justice Charles M. Christner, of West Newton, and was released on $75,000 unsecured bond.

Burich waived her right to a preliminary hearing. She is scheduled stand trial at 8:30 a.m. March 21 before Westmoreland County Court Judge William J. Ober.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
