Police Say Genesee Woman Took $13,500.00 From Cash Register Where She Worked

Woman Arrested
A Genesee, PA woman was arrested by Coudersport State Police Tuesday on theft charges.


Tiffany Marie Moag, 20, of 1138 Smoker Road, Genesee, PA, is accused of stealing $13,500.00 from the cash register of the Acorn Market located at 108 North Genesee Street in the Village of Genesee. The thefts took place between June 16, 2009 and September 9, 2009 while she was employed there.

In an Affidavit of Probable Cause filed October 20, 2009 in District Court 55-4-01, Trooper Glenn C. Drake II alleges that Tiffany Moag began work at the Acorn Market on 6-16-09. In her employment there, she worked the cash register. A co-worker working with Moag noticed that the cash register kept making a noise that indicated a voided purchase.

She then noted that Moag would write something on a paper next to the register each time the co-worker heard the noise. When the shift ended, the co-worker found the paper in the trash that listed voided purchase amounts on it.

The co-worker went to the store manager with the paper, and the manager compared the paper with the voids that had occurred on Moag's shift. The manager checked numerous unexplained register voids that had occurred on Moag's shift. The manager compiled a list of those unexplained voids that totaled $13,500.00.

She surmised that Moag was ringing in purchases, voiding that transaction, and stealing that amount at the end of her shift.

The manager terminated Moag on 9-9-2009.


Trooper Drake noted that in an interview at the Coudersport State Police barracks on September 13, 2009, Moag related that she did keep track of cancelled purchases and take that amount at the end of her shift. She related that she knew it was theft but was having financial difficulties. She stated that she did not believe that the amount she took was in excess of $9,000.00. Moag gave police a written statement.

Moag was arrested and arraigned Tuesday before District Judge Barbara Easton who released her on $10,000.00 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 28, 2009 at 11:30 am before Judge Easton.

Did she actually think $1300 a week would not be missed from a small town store?

seems it did for a few months....

maybe she had a problem, an addiction like the pharmicist in Coudersport and needs help. Everyone seems to think it was okay for the pharmacist in Coudy to do it so other people are doing it now thinking they will be able to get away with it.

Regardless of how long it took, credit has to be given the person who realized what was happening and notified the authorities.

Good job to the coworker for taking the information to the manager. You are an honest asset to your company.

Sounds like a great plan. Too bad there was a rat involved. Pesky honest workers drag everyone down.

I don't think everyone thinks the pharmacist in Coudersport was right for doing what she did. Obviously since she was found guilty on over 200 counts, the jury didn't think it was any big deal. She needs to spend some time in the big house.

Why did it take the co-worker soooooooooooooooo long to realize something wasn't kosher?

After the first, maybe 2nd week when the books looked off shoulda red-flaged somebody.

Maybe because the co-worker didn't work with her allllllllllllllllll the time!! And as far as that goes..... it doesn't matter. It was wrong and she shouldn't have been doing it!!! She should have known better!!!

I hope the comment about the rat was supposed to be funny....? I can't believe how many people can steal,......and not have a conscience! The only kind of person who should think this is a "great plan" is another Thief, or RAT like the one they caught here. The only reason for thiking this is acceptable behavior is if this girl was giving you a cut?

I don't think there should be any comparison to the pharmacist in Coudy. There are two separate issues here, with ONE fact: Both are thieves, who knew better!

I am sure that the cash flow into the household was noticed by others outside of work too. Also the co-worker had to make sure of the facts before presenting the problem to the manager. I am sure someone knew that there was a problem but waited to get the facts before falsely accusing someone.

It doesn't matter how long it took them to figure things out. Maybe the co-worker didn't want to cause any trouble because he/she wasn't positive as to what was going on. Maybe the co-worker wanted to give this young woman the benefit of doubt before accusing her. Maybe Ms. Moag should have just not done it to begin with. Then she wouldn't have had to put her co-worker in a position to turn her in and she wouldn't be in the trouble that she is in now. If everyone that was having financial difficulties resorted to stealing from the companies they work for to make ends meet, us honest people would be without jobs.

That was the problem there was no discrepancy if you read the article it states that she was voiding those transactions off after ringing them in...that means her drawer wouldn`t have shown a shortage and there would be no red flag..DUHHH..I have been a retail manager it`s not always that cut and dry .

Listen people yall dont know tiffany like i do I've known her ever since first grade she was always the quiet type of girl ... Never started DRAMA and never started any he said she said bullshit..... Shes one of my best friends and you know if she actually stole the money I can honestly with all my heart and soul she has nothing to show for it... I mean for real she still owes 3,000 and some odd dollars on her car... now if u were her wouldnt that be one of your first things on your list to pay off... and another thing i mean she has a nice apartment but she dont have a whole lot. she honestly doesnt... I mean I just dont understand this ... I really dont... i mean if yall seen this girl and her apartment yall would be like wheres all the money.... I dont belive she took it i really dont. She agreed about $400.00 so her and her now 1 year old little baby boy wouldnt be out on the street homeless. so she took the 400.00 to pay her rent..... Any of yall who went to school of know tiffany gotta know she didnt do it.... no all that money... plus that store dont have cameras also theres no id on the cash registers.... how do u know that nobody eles took money? It just makes me sick to my stomach over the whole thing... No matter what tiffany i will always be here for u know matter what.... stay strong....

It doesn't matter if she is your friend,it doesn't matter the amount she stole! She is a theif. If she was so desperate for just $400.00 then why didnt she seek help elsewhere? There are plenty of organizations out there that are willing to help if there is legitiment reasons. The fact is that she stole from the Acorn,which is probably owned by somebody or someone that is trying to make a life for them and their family as well. Maybe this will teach her a lesson...you do the crime,you do the time!!!
