21-year-old Christian Tyler is a manager at the McDonald’s on Broadway in downtown Nashville. Two weeks ago, he abruptly stopped showing up for work. At that same time, Grayco Management noticed multiple discrepancies in the store’s cash deposits made between April 7 and April 30. After reviewing security footage, Tyler was observed on four separate occasions concealing cash into his waistband instead of placing it into the Loomis safe. The total amount of the missing money was determined to be $5,589. The management company left him multiple messages to return the money, and he eventually blocked their number and never returned to work.
Police say 47-year-old Susan Ray was employed as a Manager at a Charlotte Pike McDonalds by Grayco Management in 2019. From January until September of that year, she hired her spouse into the store’s payroll system and manually entered hours into the system each pay period for which he never actually worked. The funds were distributed to the couple’s joint bank account as payroll. In total, she stole $6,089.16 during the period.
55-year-old Kelly Harris is charged with the felony theft of over $13,000 from McDonald’s. As a salaried manager at the Donelson Pike location, court records allege she took money from the nightly cash deposits, added extra hours to her daughter’s paychecks, and paid hours in the name of a terminated employee to a payroll card which she was in possession of. Harris confessed during an interview.
