A Jefferson City woman has been placed on five years of supervised probation for pleading guilty to taking merchandise while working at Kmart when it was still open on Missouri Boulevard.

Kennette Wair, 24, was charged with one count of felony receiving stolen property. As part of her probation, she must pay $2,289 in restitution.

Wair took merchandise last December through various means such as merchandise overriding, failing to run up purchases and taking items out with paying for them.

She also has a prior theft conviction in 2013.
