GERING, Neb. (AP) - A western Nebraska woman has been accused of billing a Scottsbluff business for food but then selling the food to other businesses or using it herself.

Jan Harvey, of Morrill, is charged with theft. On Friday court records didn’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on Harvey’s behalf.

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1mwsQHd ) that Harvey worked in sales for Shamrock Food Inc., which supplies food to area restaurants. A court affidavit says Harvey would sometimes bill a restaurant for food it didn’t receive. The affidavit says she often would show up at the restaurant as food was delivered and take items off the truck, saying they were meant for another restaurant.

The affidavit says the restaurant paid for nearly $41,400 in food that it did not receive.
