A Camden cafeteria worker accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the city's school district surrendered to police Thursday, authorities said.

The Camden Police Department said it received information May 5 that 53-year-old Rebecca Naomi Dorris was suspected of taking about $27,540 from the Camden Fairview Intermediate School over a five-year span.

Dorris, a Camden resident, worked at the cash register in the school's cafeteria and didn't turn in money collected from students for breakfast and lunch, a police news release said. The Camden Fairview School District reportedly provided investigators with documents in the case.

By Friday afternoon, Dorris had been released from the Ouachita County jail after posting a $2,500 bond.

    Just wondering: Would this be one felony theft of $27,540 or 900 separate misdemeanor thefts of about $30 each? Either way there is some jail time ahead, but does she have a legitimate defense against a felony charge?
