A Lebanon Walmart employee is accused of writing more than $26,000 worth of checks, some of which were stolen, on closed accounts and cashing them at her place of work over a nearly two year period.

On Friday, Lebanon's Walmart reported to the Lebanon Police Department that from October 2011 to May 2013, 55 checks on closed accounts worth $26,191.77 were written to cash and cashed at Lebanon's Walmart by a 34-year-old Lebanon woman, who worked there. Seven of the checks reportedly belonged to a 21-year-old Lebanon woman who reported the missing checks to the Marshfield Police Department in November 2012. About 20 belonged to the woman's husband's closed account and 28 were written on her own closed account, according to an LPD report.

Walmart opened an internal investigation on the woman after another employee brought a May 23 transaction to management attention. The transaction had been done by the woman with a check that was written on an account that had been closed for several months, the report said.
