A former Reidsville employee has been ordered complete 24 hours of community service by Dec. 1.

Rockingham County District Court Judge Stan Allen said he plans to dismiss a misdemeanor larceny charge against Terresia Scoble, 59, of 105 Treybourne Dr. in Reidsville, if she completes her community service by that date.

Scoble didn’t appear in court due to a recent surgery but attorney Seth Woodall did on her behalf.

Allen ordered Scoble also pay Wal-Mart $34.82 in restitution.

Scoble’s first court date took place May 8 but the judge continued it until June 2.

Scoble’s terms for dismissal resulted from a charge of misdemeanor larceny from Wal-Mart.

An employee of Wal-Mart took out a criminal summons against Scoble indicating the company believed she stole makeup, toothbrushes and dog treats amounting to $50.22 from the store, according to court records.

A magistrate issued the criminal summons against her April 13.

City Manager Michael Pearce said he placed Scoble on paid administrative leave on April 21, having first learned of her charges on April 17.

Scoble resigned from her position within the city on April 24.

The city now plans to rehire her position but change the title to business development director which holds more responsibilities.

Scoble has no previous record.
