NORTH SALT LAKE -- A North Salt Lake woman is accused of getting cash back from debit cards that were not hers. Sarah Ann Johnson, 31, was arrested by North Salt Lake police Friday and booked in Davis County Jail on a warrant for her arrest on 14 counts of theft, class B misdemeanors.

She had pleaded guilty to one count of theft, a class B misdemeanor, in North Salt Lake Justice Court on Feb. 12. The other 13 counts were dismissed as long as she complied with her probation.

A warrant for her arrest was issued Wednesday after she failed to pay a $600 fine, complete counseling and do 10 hours of community service.

North Salt Lake Police Cpl. Mark Nelson said Johnson ran customers' debit cards at a Maverik in North Salt Lake for their purchases and then took $20 for herself. A manager noticed "some strange things happening at her register," and called police.

The store identified 14 customers and returned the money to their accounts.
