A former employee of a fast food restaurant on the 1200 block of East Main Street was arrested in connection with a break in that occurred approximately a week after she was terminated, police said.

Police received a call to the business in April in reference to a woman, later identified as 34-year-old Cayla Lynn Martinez, who had entered the business after hours without permission and took $1,500 from the overnight deposit box.

Police reviewed surveillance video and observed Martinez enter the store, head straight to the camera system and disable it preventing the cameras to record any further actions.

Through the investigation Martinez was located Monday at her residence, but denied any involvement with the burglary. She was transported to the Jim Wells County jail and charged with burglary of a building.
