Roy Larkins, owner of My Bar on Main Street, reported around 1 p.m. Thursday that one of his bartenders, a female, stole alcohol and money from his bar, and apparently had been taking money from the bar little by little. Larkins stated that he went to the bar July 27 to mark liquor bottles as to how much was in the bottles and also left $200 in the cash register. He said he went in the day of the report and found beer cans and bottles that he does not sell in his establishment, and also found evidence of drug activity in his bar, including baggies in the bathroom and the smoke room off to the side being used again. Larkins said he had tried to contact the female bartender, but got no response and she had apparently changed her phone number. He also said it appeared cameras were turned off at the bar during that time, and that only he, the female bartender and one other bartender knew the alarm code. The case is under investigation.
