MUNCY – Saying she and her husband were having financial difficulties, 67-year-old Sharlyn Floe Bieber has admitted she stole an estimated $2,500 worth of merchandise from the Weis Market on East Penn Street between 2011 and mid-August.

“I am very sorry. I apologize for this unhappy happening. I will gladly do what I can to make things right,” she wrote in a statement she submitted to police.

She told Trooper Gary Beadle that it “was good she was finally caught” because she knew she would have just continued.

Among the items she allegedly took included over-the counter drugs, greeting cards, napkins, pencils and body wash, Beadle said.

A long-time store employee, Bieber, of 115 S. Main St., has been arraigned before District Judge Jon E. Kemp on felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property, and released on $5,000 bail.
