Charges against a Minden woman accused of stealing from her employer were dropped in court last week.

According to court minutes, Sandy Finley, charged with theft of goods under $500, paid all costs, and the charge was dismissed by 26th Judicial District Judge Michael O. Craig.

Assistant district attorney Marcus Patillo says normally in a case such as this, the defendant pays restitution, which satisfies the court order by making restitution and paying all court costs.

“Normally, the person they took the property from, they make restitution,” Patillo said.
Finley, 35, was arrested by Minden police in April on a warrant for felony theft. Det. Keith King, arresting officer, said in April the warrant was issued after she was accused of stealing approximately $1,100 worth of merchandise from Fannette’s Flowers and Gifts while working there. Some of the items she reportedly took from her employer included kitchen and household items.

Whitney Floyd, owner, said at the time of Finley’s arrest, some of the items were recovered, but some ongoing issues led to the discovery of the missing items and her termination of employment.
