A 47 year-old Alpena woman was arrested and jailed Tuesday, for allegedly stealing cash from the Mandarin Garden restaurant, after filling out an employment application.

Troopers from the Michigan State Police were initially sent to the restaurant on a report of an unarmed robbery.

Once on scene, officers were told the suspect had filled out an application and then took cash out of a register.  She was confronted by employees but fled the scene in her vehicle.

The woman was promptly located at her residence in the city and arrested.  She has been charged with larceny in a building.

The stolen money was recovered and returned to the restaurant.
