QUEENSBURY — A former worker at the KFC restaurant on Route 9 was arrested Monday for allegedly stealing an estimated $8,400 from the eatery while working there, police said.

Tanya S. White, 43, of Schenectady, was arrested after an investigation by the Warren County Sheriff's Office after restaurant administration noticed an apparent theft, officials said.

Police determined that White was taking orders from customers but not entering them into the restaurant's cash register between last April and last month, resulting in felony counts of grand larceny and falsifying business records, according to the Sheriff's Office.

White was arraigned in Queensbury Town Court and released on her own recognizance. Sheriff's Patrol Officer Jesse Pound and Investigator Doug David investigated the case.
