Ex Wal-Mart worker guilty in coupon scheme

INDIANA, Pa. (AP) — A former western Pennsylvania Wal-Mart employee has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $255,000 from the store in a coupons-for-cash scheme.

Thirty-nine-year-old Eileen Zimmerman, of Homer City, entered the plea Monday and will return for sentencing before an Indiana County judge on June 28.

State police investigators say Zimmerman was responsible for reconciling daily sales involving coupons at the store in Burrell Township, near Blairsville, about 50 miles east of Pittsburgh.

The investigation began after a coupon clearinghouse that reimburses Wal-Mart found a $75,000 discrepancy over a few months. An audit followed showing that Zimmerman stole more than three times that much in about two years before she was charged last May.

Auditors and police investigators examined store records and surveillance videos to determine how much was stolen.
