Theft from employer draws suspended sentence

CROSSVILLE — A former fast food restaurant employee accused of stealing a bank deposit from a manager's purse pleaded guilty in Cumberland County Criminal Court and was ordered to pay restitution as part of his suspended sentence conditions. He was also placed under judicial diversion status.

Louis J. Kirkman III, 23, whose last known address was listed on Red Fox Dr., was charged with theft of more than $1,000 and pleaded guilty to that charge. He received a three-year suspended sentence to be served on probation, was ordered to pay $4,887.69 restitution to McDonald's on N. Main St., and is banned from entering the restaurant.

The incident took place in August 2013 and, according to Ptl. Brian Eckelson's report at the time, had entered an office and removed a bank deposit from an assistant manager's purse. He later announced that day would be his last day at work because he said he was moving from Crossville.
