I am very glad these discrepancies were uncovered. My family has been shopping at Roger Reynolds for decades. I'd hate to see the business lose more money.

I always wonder what makes a person do something like this? Gambling, debts, no conscience?

It's very sad that this happened. Even more sad that it's not the first time for Ms. Weiler...

i know ms weiler personally.i do not agree with anything about what she did.stealing is wrong.but i also know why she did it.her family was involved in a house fire earlier that year and nearly lost everything. bills racking up not making ends meet each month with no one to help her she was force with a choice let her and her children be homeless or take little money each month to pay bills and make sure her family is taken care of.what would you do if you were her.she made too much to get help from the government but made too little to handle all the bills that was associated with what happened earlier that year with the fire and couldn't get out of the hole.there is a lot more to this story then what is written in the papers and a lot of lies about how much was really stolen.this woman was forced with a choice none of us should ever have to make.and now her family the ones she tried to protect from the start are the ones that will now suffer.i pray they come out ok.i do not agree with what she did but there is so much more to it then what anyone knows

There is no reason anyone should steal money or anything. Especially if they have children. I don't believe there ever was a fire that they suffered, that was all part of her act. Now what is she going to do with everything? She's in a worse situation now than she was before. There are alot of people out there suffering and can't pay their bills and are losing their homes and jobs they've had for a long time and they don't pull that b.s. I don't feel sorry for her, she got herself into it, now she can suffer. Plus she hurt innocent people in her scam while she did it. You get what you ask for and she asked for it and now she got it. I don't know how much time she got in jail, but I would like to know. Probably not enough for the people she hurt in her scam as it went along. That's the sad part. It's called KARMA and I guess it caught up to her. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Indeed, there was a fire. However, the bill for the fire was about $40k.. not $140K that they can PROVE and definately NOT the over $200K that they believe she actually stole.
[Portion removed; see terms of use.] She wasn't looking to pay the damn fire expenses.
"Understand" - you were totally sucked into the slickness/SICKNESS of her lies.
Sadly, this is not her first time. It's just the first time she's been caught.
