A woman who worked as a civilian employee for Fullerton police was arrested, accused of stealing from the department.

Fullerton police say 52-year-old April Baughman has been stealing cash from the department's property room for the past two years.

She was arrested while at work on Thursday after one of her co-workers discovered a discrepancy in cash at the office and alerted supervisors.

Baughman, who has worked at the department for 22 years, was taken to Orange County Jail where she was booked.
