This question is in regards ***** ***** having this happen at work today. From doing some basic research off of the Colorado State government website and the immediate areas seems to apply to Theft
under 18-4-401 (2) (c) & 18-4-401 (4) as the initial point that seems to be the immediate issue.
I work at a comic/card game store that is owned by one owner. The owner and I are the only ones that are working at the store.
Today I was told that the owner is confident that there are comics that value wise between approx $2,200 and $6,000. There is an unknown number of higher value comics, some approx. $40 and some individual comics up to approx. $700, that are not able to be accounted for though register receipts. The main time frame that this is all happening is from around the days before May 25, 2015 till today (June 16).
I have used a company computer
that I use when he is not there. The owner has his own separate computer he uses. The computer that I used shows browser history of me looking up some of the key issues on comics that have gone missing. There is multiple times of searches though the almost month long search that this has happened which I can not answer all of them as to what happened on days that I did these that is to his satisfaction and sent me home and told me to think about what happened or how to say what has happened. Earlier in the day he has mentioned that further action may need to be taken including polygraph, reporting this to the insurance company, and the sheriff/police.
My main question right now is what is the steps that I can do as nothing has happened other than this but seems to be a situation that could easily escalate. He has said he does not want to bring it farther but being how it is right now, I do not know what to do to both protect me and protect the store all at the same time, if it is possible to do both.
