Beavers, 25, were each charged with a Class C felony of theft/stealing after they allegedly stole gift cards from Heartland East Hospital Gift Shop between Feb. 13 and March 4, where they worked as volunteers.

According to probable cause statements submitted by Detective Terry Adams with the St. Joseph Police Department, Ms. Cary-Wilmes stole 55 gift cards Feb. 18 and Feb. 25 valued at $1,375 total.
Heartland security footage allegedly showed the defendant “stealing and concealing the multiple gift cards in her shirt pocket,” Mr. Adams reported. She also allegedly stole a ring from the gift shop.

On Feb. 20 and Feb. 27, Ms. Beavers stole 23 assorted gift cards estimated at a total value of $470, court documents stated. Ms. Beavers also was allegedly shown stealing a ring on surveillance video.

“The complainant supplied her written statement that she had an estimate of $50,000 worth of stolen gift cards missing within the three years Anyssa had been volunteering,” court documents reported. “Another witness statement, documents showing the (work) schedule and a spread sheet (showed) the correlation between the defendants’ schedule and the gift cards that came up missing on the same days.”

The spread sheet provided to detectives documents the gift cards stolen between Feb. 13 and March 4 were valued at $6,782 total. After Ms. Cary-Wilmes and Ms. Beavers waived verbal consent for officers to search their vehicles and purses, multiple cards were recovered and booked into evidence.

“This is an ongoing investigation, but we are thankful for the efforts of the St. Joseph Police Department. We will be fully cooperative with any other needs they or any other law enforcement may have,” said Tracey Clark, spokesperson for Heartland.

Police Cmdr. Janice Rothganger said Ms. Cary-Wilmes and Ms. Beavers were arrested at Missouri Western State University on Tuesday afternoon. Kent Heier, Western’s assistant director of public relations and marketing, confirmed that both defendants are students.

The sisters remained in custody Wednesday afternoon in lieu of $7,500 bond each. They are scheduled for arraignment Friday.
