Court documents state Malay was charged after an Albert Lea officer received a call from dispatch Feb. 22, 2018, regarding an employee theft from Walmart. The store’s manager reportedly said Malay admitted taking $20 bills from a till while she worked “and pocketed the money to steal,” court documents state.
