Iowa City police charged a Cedar Rapids woman after she allegedly stole $1,300 while working as a manager at Hy-Vee.

Rebekka Hayslett, 27, was charged Nov. 11 with second-degree theft.

According to a complaint, Hayslett was employed at the North Dodge Hy-Vee, where she had access to the store safe.

The complaint said a store audit/investigation revealed Hayslett allegedly "shorted" the safe $100 at least 12 times and used a $100 gift card fraudulently.

Hayslett allegedly gave a Hy-Vee a signed confession, explaining she took the money because she was frustrated, struggling, and in a "financial situation."

Hayslett also allegedly admitted to taking the money in a recorded interview at the Iowa City police station under Miranda, but she thought the amount was closer to $300 or $400.
