Yoke’s night manager accused of theft

A Deer Park grocery store manager was arrested on suspicion of theft Thursday.

Renee K. Olson, 47, is accused of stealing more than $1,600 from Yoke's, 810 S. Main St., by making fraudulent cash refunds when no customers were present. She's due in Superior Court this afternoon via video from the jail, where she was booked on a second-degree theft charge.

Deputy Dan Dutton reviewed security video of Olson, the night manager, making the refunds after being called to the store about 7 p.m. Thursday.

Store employees believe she's been making the phony refunds since January. She has since been fired, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.
