Last week we told you about the Giant Eagle worker accused of consuming $9,200 worth of sliced ham and salami over the course of eight years while working the deli counter.

Whether or not the employee has been terminated has not been revealed, but according to Tuscarawas County Prosecutor Ryan Styer, Giant Eagle’s management had told his office on Tuesday that the business was not interested in seeing the employee prosecuted. "Even if a theft charge had been pursued, accusing the employee of a felony would have been overkill," Styer told the Canton Repository.

The employee was reported to snacked their way through almost a decade at the store at 11031 state Route 212 NE in Lawrence Township. She admitted the pilferage on Sept. 7 after the Giant Eagle loss prevention manager received a tip about the employee nibbling on the goods.

According to Glassdoor, when factoring in bonuses and additional compensation, a meat cutter at Giant Eagle can expect to make an average yearly salary of $28,365.
