From NBC Washington on 2/23/2015:
A J.C. Penney employee in Virginia has been accused of stealing items worth hundreds of thousands of dollars from the store and reselling them.
Teresa Ann Stockton allegedly stole jewelry, women's clothing, cosmetics and perfume from the J.C. Penney store at Springfield Town Center. According to a search warrant, the investigation began when a store loss prevention officer reported items worth a total of $200,000 had been stolen from the store over the past two years.
Police were then given a list of jewelry department employees and discovered that Stockton had pawned numerous jewelry items. Court documents also revealed that she was selling merchandise on her eBay account.
Police seized jewelry, clothing and a watch from Stockton's Springfield home.
Stockton has been charged with two counts of embezzlement.
