Checkers cashier stole $17,000 from register, police say

DADE CITY — A Checkers cashier pocketed $17,443 from the register during her nine months on the job, according to the Dade City Police Department.

Tierra T. Rooks, 21, was arrested Thursday and charged with scheme to defraud.

A police report said Rooks worked as a cashier at a Checkers restaurant at 12600 U.S. 301 from June until March. Rooks is accused of stealing the money by "manipulating the daily sales transaction reports to account for the shortage of missing funds," the report said.

Rooks, of 38401 Tuskegee Ave. in Dade City, is being held at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
