Danny Eugene Mayes and Andrew Scott Mosher, both 19, were arrested Wednesday after detectives say the pair stole $4,000 worth of electronics from the store they were working in.
Store security contacted CCSO on Tuesday following an internal investigation that two employees were stealing items from the store. Detectives met with security and learned that Mosher and Mayes had been removing items from boxes and hiding the empty packaging at various locations in the store, according to the report.
Among the items stolen were five Apple iPads, a PlayStation Vita, various games, earphones, and a knife. Detectives say both stole the items and Mayes was reportedly selling them on the internet to buyers in Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and Fort Myers for money needed to go to college.
Detectives recovered some of the unsold items and $1,020 in cash from the sale of the other items.
Both have been charged with Grand Theft and Dealing in Stolen Property. Mayes bond was set at $27,000 and Mosher at $7,500.
