Liquor store employee charged with theft

A 50-year-old South Summit man is charged with felony theft after he allegedly stole about $3,000 from the state liquor store at Kimball Junction.

From January to April, Lawrence Alen Delhousaye was the assistant manager of the liquor store at 612 Ute Boulevard, court papers state.

"Mr. Delhousaye was confronted about missing cash from the liquor store," according to documents prosecutors filed in 3rd District Court on May 18.

Delhousaye admitted he stole more than $3,000 during February, March and April, prosecutors claim.

"The thefts were captured on video," court papers state. "The defendant admitted to trying to get by on this additional money that he freely took while attempting to hide the thefts by showing them as returns on the cash register and his credit card."

Delhousaye on Monday made an initial appearance in 3rd District Court in the Snyderville Basin. A roll call hearing is scheduled June 7.

Delhousaye is on administrative leave from his job at the liquor store pending the outcome of the investigation, an employee at the business said Tuesday.
