A Denton woman is out of jail following a brief stay while she awaits court proceedings proceeding in connection with an employee theft case involving a local convenience store.

Julie M. Stricklin, 48, faces one felony theft count and two misdemeanor counts of aiding and abetting. If convicted, the felony crime of theft is potentially punishable by five to 17 months of confinement in state prison. The misdemeanors carry penalties of fines and/or jail time.

Stricklin heard the formal charges on file against Monday, June 24, in the District Court of Atchison County.

An Atchison-based attorney, John Kurth, serves as court-appointed defense counsel for Stricklin. Bond was set at $10,000 bond and her next appointment is 9 a.m. Friday, June 28 in district court. Kurth requested a bond screen for his client.

After Monday’s court appearance, Stricklin posted bond and was released from jail, according to an Atchison County Jail log information.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson said police launched an investigation on June 19 that centered on a theft case at Casey’s General Store located at 1629 Main Street. The investigation resulted in Stricklin’s arrest for the theft of merchandise from the store on four days in June.

The collective value of the items totals $262, Wilson said. Stricklin had been employed at Casey’s for several months.
