A Missoula man, Lucas Lee Kibler, was charged in Missoula Justice Court on Wednesday, December 4, with felony theft by embezzlement while he worked at Walmart.

According to court documents, police responded to Walmart on Brooks in Missoula on December 3  for a report of an employee accused of theft. The manager told police that Kibler had worked at the store from October 30, 2013 to November 30, 2013, and in that period had stolen approximately $3,150. The manager provided surveillance video that he stated documented the thefts.

Court documents go on to state that Kibler would complete a transaction with a customer and then take cash in increments of $50 to $100 from the register. KIbler admitted to the thefts during an interview.

At his justice court appearance, Deputy Missoula County Attorney Jordan Kilby asked Judge Karen Orzech for certain conditions in allowing Kibler to be released on his own recognizance.

“The state is OK with an OR release in this case because he doesn’t have any criminal history, and it sounds like he has been fired from his job,” Kilby said. “We would ask, however, that he have no contact with Walmart or any of its employees, and I would also ask that he not be allowed to work anywhere he would have to handle cash.”

Judge Orzech did allow Kibler to be released on his own recognizance until his next appearance in court on December 18.
