KINGSTON — An employee of Dunkin' Donuts is in trouble because city police say she stole money and then tried to pin the blame on an unknown assailant who she claimed robbed her in the parking lot.
Rebecca Pugliese of Kingston reported that she was accosted by a man in the parking lot who took from her two bank deposit bags that contained $3,900 in cash.
But upon further investigation, police now believe it was Pugliese who took the money. She has been charged with third-degree grand larceny, a felony, and falsely reporting an incident, a misdemeanor.
