DAUPHIN COUNTY — A former employee at a Harrisburg shoe store is facing charges after police say he bilked his employer out of more than $17,000.

Police say between April 2017 and December 2018, Mobley stole cash from Red Wing Shoes by enticing customers to pay cash for purchases, then pocketing the money and altering sales records to avoid detection. Mobley allegedly cost the business $17,835.92 in losses before he was caught, police say.

He was arraigned at Night Court and released on $10,000 bail.
