Theater employee charged with theft

Zachary Tubbs worked in the Rosemount movie theater for some time before officers found out selling movie tickets wasn’t all he was doing.

Tubbs, 20, of Rosemount, was charged with theft for allegedly stealing money from the theater.

Police responded April 4 to this report. Officers met with the manager of the theater who told the officers his corporate office alerted him to a discrepancy in their accounting system regarding voided movie tickets.

After the manager and the officers reviewed records and surveillance video they came to the conclusion that Tubbs was a huge part of these questionable transactions. According to a complaint filed in the Dakota County office the defendant would ring up movie tickets, void the transaction then pocket the cash from the return. He can be seen on video taking the cash and putting it in his pockets. The manager of the theater provided the officer with all evidence that occurred between 2/4/2014 to 4/3/2014 and totaled to $3,596.00.

On April 5, 2014, the defendant voluntarily went to the Rosemount Police Department and talked with an investigator to give a statement. According to the complaint, Tubbs admitted that during that time period he would ring up the movie tickets, void the transaction and then pocket the money. He stated that he was making student loan payments and needed money for groceries or other basic needs. Tubbs signed a statement regarding his actions and said that he knew that what he was doing was wrong and that he was very remorseful.

If convicted on a felony theft charge, Tubbs could spend up to five years in jail and face a fine of up to $10,000.00.
