Woman accused of thefts while working at online order center

October 30, 2019

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A woman is accused of stealing more than $20,000 while working at a Nordstrom center in Cedar Rapids at which online orders were fulfilled.

Linn County court records say 48-year-old Rhonda Kies is charged with theft. The records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for the Vinton resident. Kies’ preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 15.

Authorities say Kies was seen in security video stealing a bracelet. A criminal complaint says Kies later told investigators she’d stolen items on more than one occasion over the past couple of years.

The Gazette reports that Kies is the third Nordstrom employee in the past 11 months to be arrested on accusations of stealing.
