Whoa! Employee Stoled $127,000 of Chemicals

Last week a Leesburg, New York man plead guilty of stealing the chemicals over a two-year period so he could sell them on ebay. Full story in LM direct eNewsletter (Landscape Management). I was flabergasted when I read this. This article rated a "10" in voter polls.

That company did not have any inventory control. You do not have to check out every drop, but you should have a handle on what is going where and notice that there is a difference. Inventory controller has doing a bad job or the IC was the thief. A good company should have a checks and balances that covers them for a IC doing a bad job.
But then agai, this was New York.
