Former employee charged with stealing from Glenwood Hot Springs

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado - A former employee of the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge and Pool will be in court on Dec. 12 to answer charges that she stole more than $3,800 from the company.

Diane Margret Graf, 45, of Glenwood Springs, was arrested and booked at the county jail on Nov. 19, after an internal investigation by the Hot Springs Pool management and questioning by police.

She currently is free on $5,000 bond.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit written by Glenwood Springs Police Detective Matt Gronbeck and filed with the court on Nov. 13, the Hot Springs management first reported its suspicions on Oct. 15.

By Oct. 26, the management's internal investigation had accumulated computerized and videotaped evidence that pointed to Graf, according to the affidavit.

Graf, who worked primarily at night, is partly accused of searching out daytime cash transactions at the shops in the pool complex, and voiding those transactions.

Graf then allegedly pocketed the cash, according to the affidavit.

She also is accused of accepting cash for purchases at the shops, but ringing them up using the "No Sale" key instead of the proper transaction key.

Because the "No Sale" key simply opens the cash drawer, the affidavit states, Graf then allegedly pocketed the cash.

There was no indication in the affidavit how long the alleged thefts may have been going on.">class="NormalParagraphStyle">
