Roses Clerk Charged With Embezzlement

A store clerk is accused of pocketing $12,000 over the past several months from her employer.

Williamston police have charged Linda Mitchell with four counts of embezzlement on Monday.

Court documents say Mitchell was charged with stealing $3,000 on at least four different occasions since August from Roses Department Store.

Mitchell was released after posting a $5,000 bond and went before a judge this morning. Her next court date is April 4th.

    i know linda and i have worked with her for about 5 years when i worked at wal-mart. She is a good person but sometimes people make mistakes. And to all of you that are judging her need to check your self. The bible says the one that is FREE of sin cast the first stone. I know she is sorry for what she has done so get off her back.And to her kids please stay by her side that will meant the world to her. And to Linda keep your head up, God forgives you and thats all that matters!

    I stated she was sneaky bc she got away with it for motnhs!!! That is sneaky! Also she was always telling on ppl for little petty things, and that was doing her job yes, but it was her way of covering up her embezzln!! Its obvious that's why she told on ppl! Someone stated u don't know anyone behind closed doors and u don't! I thought miss linda was decent very nice and respectfull, but she wasn't she was just covering her tale and got caught!!!!! Nothing else to say, she got caught and deserves punishement and yes by me being a co worker n tax payer I am entitled to my opinion bc the money stolen was not mine but a lot of ppl's tax money! So I am entitled to MY OPINION! I understand yall are hurt with all the negativity and if it was my mother I would do the same! But my mother would not do that, due to my familys income and not only that they are trustworthy and have MORALS!!! Obviously she got caught in the past now again, you do the math! Prayers for the daughter n Cedric, I know him but not the daughter!! But I am not Praying for her she deserves to be punished n I hope they get her to the max esp how she told on everyone for everyyyyy little thing, not bc it was her job but to make it look good and cover her tale! I have lost all respect for her!!!!!!!!

    I am not scared to say anything to her face! And I do know you! But for her being fired for it before always getting on to people for little things and the whole time she was stuffing money in her shoes! It wasn't a mistake she done in mutiple times! I understand ur defending ur mom as I would, but I mean really? I loved ur momma to death she was the sweetest woman but u never know someone behind closed doors, also u might want to be careful threatn ppl!!! Because u can get in trouble for cyber staking cyber threats n etc!!!!

      you know...you're argument almost sounds like her getting into trouble is some sort of karmic retribution for her "getting onto people for little things". she did what she did and she's paying for that. that has nothing to do with whatever you did that she "got onto you" about.

    i am linda's daughter. though i do not condone what she has done...i stand by her. i read the comments and it makes me a little sad...some people made constructive comments that seem to come from a thougtful place. constructive criticism is always appreciated. it seems like some of you took this time to take low blows. what she did was wrong and she'll have to answer to the law and God for that. but being petty on a website just makes you seem self-righteous and snobby.

        it is, we're very defensive our mother. by they way, saying "too" implies that i have called someone petty and foolish. but i said being petty on a website is self-righteous and snobby, never had i said anyone was foolish. besides, i would take someone defending a love one anyday over someone attempting to belittle someone from a place of anonymity.
