Obviously, I cannot predict precisely what your employers will or will not do.
Some employers will report the matter to the police as a matter of policy.
However, many employers will not and the reason is that employers are concerned that their systems were not tight enough to stop you succeeding in doing it.
The amount involved is relatively small and I suspect that the employer is unlikely to want to draw attention to the fact you were able to do this in the first place. You should resign and offer to repay the amount involved once you are able to. They cannot force you to stay.
If there are any further points please reply I will be happy to respond.
Otherwise , please either accept or rate my answer on the system so I get credit for my time.
