Employee admits embezzling from Walmart

By MELINDA WILLIAMS

A 26-year-old Pulaski man was ordered to repay the Dublin Walmart store more nearly $2,500 Thursday after admitting to embezzling the funds early last year.

According to prosecutors, the embezzlement was discovered when store management determined checkout registers were “coming up short.” Further investigation determined Evan Michael Kibler was operating the registers that were short of the required cash to meet each day’s transactions.

Kibler was sentenced, under a plea agreement, to three years in prison. All of the sentence was suspended under the condition he make restitution to Walmart and keep the peace and be of good behavior during a two –year period of supervised probation.

The defendant also was ordered to stay away from the Dublin Walmart.

    I don’t think it’s right that he got off that easy, I know people that have done less and have to pull their time, you are telling him thatwhat he done is ok,If he would serve his time Mabey it would show others that they will have consequences instead of telling them it’s ok to steal!!!!!!

    Why does jail always need to be the solution? Do you know who pays for the jails? We do. The kid stole a couple thousand dollars. Would Walmart rather he be in jail, out of jail with a job to pay it back? Walmart is the victim. Are you saying that a victim shouldn’t have a say in what happens to the person who victimized them? And if you are saying that people will think stealing is ok because this kid didn’t go to jail, well you just need to hang out with smarter people. The kid got caught, fired, charged, and made a deal to make restitution. He also has to remain out of trouble for 2 years, which for some isn’t that easy.

    Walmart robs billions from taxpayers and gets away with it. An under paid employee steals a measly 2500 and he could getv3 years. This is total BS. Walmart should be forced to pay taxpayers back and the Waltons should be put in prison!!

      Wait… You’re saying that two wrongs make a right?

      Even more so, you’re doing so with arguments that aren’t based on fact. In 2010 Walmart paid $7.1 billion in taxes. Regardless of what one may think of Walmart, your claim is simply untrue.

      I’m also willing to bet you’ve done a fair bit of business in a Walmart store.

      Under paid? Perhaps, but he agreed to the wage he was receiving. He is not the victim. Your logic scares me.
