The complainant, the manager, said she counted money at 5:30 a.m. Feb. 9 from the previous day's sales and put the money in various bundles according to the denominations.

The following day, Feb. 10, the bank notified her that her deposit was $2,850 less than what she said she had counted, and some of the money bundles she knew had been there were gone.
