The jig was up when $5,700 went missing from a local eatery in just five days.
The loss was reported at Hagatna Pizza Hut, where further investigation and an audit revealed that from Jan. 22 to Jan. 25, 2019, numerous orders were deleted and changed to a .75 cent sauce.
A court complaint charges one of three Pizza Hut assistant managers, namely Victoria Jesmarina Meno Santiago, as being responsible for the deletions.
Court documents state: “The three assistant managers, to include Santiago, were asked why there were so many ticket change and orders that were deleted. They responded that ‘customers changed their minds and wanted the sauce only.’ When asked if they knew the proper procedure for canceling an order, they stated that they knew they were required to fill out a form and give a brief synopsis as to why the order was canceled.”
Pizza Hut suspended the assistant managers for seven days reporting that during that period, sales went up 100 percent.
An extensive audit was completed, revealing that over $50,000 in total orders were deleted and changed by the three employees.
While the audit showed that 343 ticket changes and orders of deletion transactions totaling $15,850.64 in four months were generated by Santiago, she only fessed up to generating four or five tickets for about $441.00.
She has been charged with one count of aggregated theft of property held in trust, as a second-degree felony.
She was booked and confined.
