KTUU.com Alaska's news and information source Woman charged for stealing thousands from pull tab business:
"KENAI, Alaska (AP) - An employee at a pull-tab business has been arrested for stealing more than $53,000 to support an addiction to painkillers.
Brandi M. Montague of Soldotna, was charged last week with first degree theft after an annual audit at River City Pull Tabs revealed an unexplained loss.
The business is owned and operated by the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce, which contacted police.
Police say the alleged theft occurred between July 2006 and June 2007.
According to court documents, Montague said she used the money to support her addiction to painkillers and would rip the pull tabs and cash out any winnings.
Michelle Glaves is executive director of the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce.
She says Montague worked as a pull tab clerk at River City Pull Tabs for about three years.
She said she couldn't comment on why the chamber suspected Montague."
