Wrigley Field cashier charged with theft

A Wrigley Field cashier was ordered held in lieu of $10,000 Saturday after she allegedly stole at least $1,400 from a coworker’s ballpark register.

Porsha Summeries, 21, of the 3500 block of South Dearborn Street, was charged with one felony count of theft after she allegedly admitted to stealing the money.

Cook County prosecutors said she repeatedly stole cash Friday afternoon from another cashier’s drawer — unbeknownst to her coworker — then gave at least $200 to another employee.

Management at Levy Restaurants, which serves food at Wrigley Field, noticed money missing from the register and confronted Summeries and the other employee Friday evening, prosecutors said.

Summeries allegedly then signed a statement admitting she took the money, at which point management called the police. She returned $1,255, prosecutors said.

Summeries did not speak with police at the time of her arrest, prosecutors told Judge Laura Marie Sullivan.
