JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police arrested a Walmart employee Saturday on allegations she stole over $37,000 from the big box retailer.
Judy Ocampo, 46, was arrested Saturday and charged with employee theft.
Ocampo was arrested at the Normandy Boulevard Walmart after the store found out she had been stealing money from them.
Ocampo would remove large bills from the registers and take them to make change. Instead of placing the large bills in the area they were supposed to go, she would palm the large bills, according to an arrest report from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Ocampo would then go to the bathroom where she would put the money in her pocket.
Ocampo gave a written confession to Walmart. Ocampo told police she took the money because she is depressed and addicted to pain medication, according to the report.
Ocampo told police she wants to try and pay Walmart back to make things right.
