Publix worker in Pasco accused of stealing $3,000


Publix employee charged with theft

A Publix employee is accused of pocketing $3,000 instead of depositing the money at the bank.

According to Zephyrhills police, Jami Elizabeth Cormier, a 23-year-old customer service employee, altered two bank deposit slips so she could keep the difference. Cormier "concealed the currency on her person and exited the store" at 7838 Gall Blvd., a police report said.

She later told police she took the money to pay bills, the report said.

Cormier, of 7349 16th St., was charged Tuesday with grand theft. She was released from the Land O'Lakes jail on $2,000 bail.


Three drivers injured in crash on SR 54

Authorities are looking for witnesses to a crash that critically injured one driver and wounded two others.

The accident happened just before 1 p.m. Wednesday on State Road 54 west of Grand Oaks Boulevard. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Matthew B. Sandretzky, 28, was driving westbound when his Ford F-250 pickup veered into the eastbound lane, striking an oncoming Ford F-150 pickup driven by Michael G. Degroot, 48.

Sandretzky's truck overturned on its right side. An eastbound Pontiac G6, driven by Paula A. Porton, 55, was unable to avoid crashing into a trailer on Degroot's truck, FHP said.

Degroot of Wesley Chapel was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital with critical injuries, the FHP said. Sandretzky, also of Wesley Chapel, and Porton of Tampa were treated for minor injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FHP's Pasco office at (352) 797-5737.
