A Dollar General employee in Theodosia is accused of stealing and helping others steal thousands of dollars worth of merchandise over the course of several months.

Ozark County deputies arrested 53-year-old Kenneth Smith and charged him with felony stealing.

According to court documents, Smith allowed and helped multiple people steal carts full of items without paying the full amount.

Deputies say it started in November and continued until earlier this month.

More than $16,000 in merchandise was reportedly stolen during that time period.
