MASON CITY — A former Mason City fast food restaurant worker accused of pocketing over $1500 cash has been sentenced to probation.

A criminal complaint stated that 46-year-old Stacy Anderson while serving as manager at Burger King between February 1st and May 5th in 2021 voided multiple orders after customers had paid with cash, and at the end of the night took the cash from the voided orders and left the store. The total amount of cash taken during the multiple incidents was over $1500.

Anderson was originally charged with ongoing criminal conduct, a Class B felony, and second-degree theft, a Class D felony. As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, Anderson pleaded guilty to the second-degree theft charge with the ongoing criminal conduct charge being dropped.

District Judge Gregg Rosenbladt recently sentenced Anderson to a five-year suspended prison sentence and placed her on five years probation.
