HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Margaret Faleafaga was busted for theft while working at Wal-Mart. Now police are trying to catch the Oahu woman again.

A man walked into the store on Keeaumoku Street shortly after 8 p.m. on December 6, 2007. He was helped by Faleafaga.

"A customer entered Wal-Mart and proceeded to the customer service area where he purchased a MoneyGram from Faleafaga," said Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.

At the end of her shift, more than $1,000 was missing from the cash register.

"The asset protection manager investigating the loss of the money reviewed surveillance tape and found that Faleafaga accepted the money, put it on the side while she did the transaction, and later concealed the money in her pocket," said Buffett.

Police arrested Faleafaga, 29, for second-degree theft. Now she is wanted for an $11,000 warrant for violating her probation. She also has two traffic warrants totaling $450.

"She is known to frequent the Honolulu area, and has two prior convictions, one of them being the theft," said Buffett.

Faleafaga is described as 5'3" and 207 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes, and tattoos on both arms. Call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 with your tips.
