A woman in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been convicted of stealing from her work on her first day on the job.
Joan Adamson, 47, had a lengthy history of theft before being hired to work at a 7-Eleven. After being hired, she arrived on her first day on the job and loaded several pre-paid credit cards with more than $4,500.
The next day, police were called to the convenience store after it was reportedly left unattended. Adamson later told police that she left at 1 a.m. because the next person did not show up for their shift.
She was finally captured days later after an officer spotted her driving in a residential area. The officer believed that he had boxed her in, and was approaching the vehicle when Adamson drove at him through a lawn, despite him having his gun drawn. She was later arrested after blowing out her tire.
Adamson pleaded guilty to forgery, theft and failing to stop at the command of an officer.
