A 20-year-old Lawrence resident is charged with embezzling more than $26,000 in cash from the Dillons grocery store at 4701 W. Sixth St. from July 2010 until March 2011, according to police reports.

Michael Everrett Smith, 20, was arrested Wednesday afternoon, and has been charged in Douglas County District Court.

The Dillons security district manager initially contacted Lawrence police about the crime in March.

Be interested to hear why it took them so long to catch on. And is that timeframe consistent with when that Dillons was remodeling? Maybe it had something to do with a contractor or something.

Maybe the poor lad enjoyed fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, swordfish, crab, quality aged cheese, thick center cut pork chops, t-bones, homemade bleu cheese dressing, and such.

One can run up a grocery bill nowadays.

Reminds me of another Smith that funded a European vacation on the back of the Mass St. Dillons back in the last '70's, early '80's. Sketchy.....

Looks like some relatives posting here. He is such a nice boy! It's not a mistake until you get caught, then, he didn't mean to do it, it was a mistake.

Why bash someone when you don't even know them. You all are nothing but nosey people who have nothing else better to do but bully others.

Why bother even having a trial, seems to be the idea of many posters who assume the prosecution is always correct based on allegations alone.

I watched a trial last year prosecuted by this same assistant DA in which she charged a 19-yr-old with rape. The jury thought otherwise.

Slhsgrad no a mistake is forgetting to clock out at the end of a shift or putting the wrong date code product on the shelf. Walking out of the store with money that is not yours over and over is not a mistake, it is a crime.

This had nothing to do with drugs, daddy issues, not a con artist just a mistake. Yes a big mistake but I'm sure that everyone has made some type of mistake in their life. You people can be so rude without knowing the story.

Crime is stupidity in action. Most people aren't smart enough to embezzle and get away with it; I don't know why they even try.

I certainly hope all that money counts toward purchases on his Dillons card.

Must not have been old enough to realize that the security cameras at these places are only placed where 10% of the customers are but 90% of the employees are.

That's more that $3,000 a month. It stopped in March and just now the person is getting arrested?

Of course he had $2,000 to be able to bail him self out.

I'm curious to know how such a young employee even had access to such serious money. If he were a checker and ran a cash register, would it be possible to take that much, little by little, from the till?

It never fails to astound me when someone throws out their future and their good name for a chance at some quick cash. Was it really worth it, kid? Think your parents are proud of you? If one of my kids did something like this, I would be sick.

if you learn about drugs from watching your dad do em (as old Nancy would have you believe) I would guess this fine chap learned his special skill by watching the news. Enron/Wallstreet/KU/that lady in Lawrence who stole money from her job (think it was a sign co)/Christopher J. Ward and way too many to list.

He's a thief, not a con artist.
