Jenene Burgess Rodgers, 39, of Chesapeake, Virginia, pleaded guilty yesterday to six counts of embezzlement, admitting she stole about $157,000 from Dollar Tree Inc., where she had been employed as a clerk in the finance department handling company vendors. According to prosecutors, Rodgers created fake accounts to misappropriate company funds to pay her personal expenses, including a student loan, make online purchases and to take cash, over a nearly three year period between February 2007 and December 2009. All in, Rodgers, who must make restitution as part of the plea agreement, stole $157,588.19, according to authorities. She was arrested last December.
