A Clark County man who worked at a Vancouver Subway restaurant is accused of stealing nearly $12,000 from the business.

Michael Wayne Marquiss, 29, made a first appearance Thursday in Clark County Superior Court on a summons for first-degree theft.

Judge David Gregerson ordered that Marquiss be booked and released within 72 hours. Marquiss is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 14, court records show.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, Tony Rizzo reported that a Subway employee, identified as Marquiss, had been stealing from the business, 322 S.E. 192nd Ave., over several days between June 2019 and October 2020.

Marquiss was fired in October, and at that time, allegedly apologized for the thefts, the affidavit states.

Store accounting records were examined, and it was discovered that the thefts totaled $11,887.83, court records say.

Rizzo said Marquiss would make a sale to a customer. He would then cancel the sale, and when no on was around, he would open the cash register and withdraw the amount that had been canceled. He did this several times during a shift, according to court documents.
