Cumberland woman allegedly steals $53,000 from ATM, lottery tickets at work

Barron County (WQOW) – A Cumberland woman is charged with theft after police say she stole nearly $30,000 from an ATM at her work.

Amber Hirsch was charged Wednesday in Barron County.

According to police, the owner of the Cumberland BP station told police that between January and April, more than $29,000 was taken from the store’s ATM.

The owner said it was Hirsch’s job to re-fill the machine at the beginning of her shift.

Officers found surveillance video showing Hirsch putting some of the money in her purse. Video also shows her scratching and scanning lottery tickets during her shift without paying for them.

In all, the Cumberland BP believes their total loss was nearly $53,000.

Hirsch returns to court next month. She is free on a $3,000 signature bond.
