– Authorities were called to Walgreens after store loss prevention caught an employee who allowed customers to leave the store without paying for hundreds of dollars in merchandise and also pocketed money from the cash register for at least a year, police said
According to police, employee, Nathan C. Walker, 20, of the 100 block of West Foundry Street, was charged Monday with shoplifting and theft.
Police responded to the pharmacy on North High Street about 6:24 p.m. Monday for a report of theft by a store employee.
Scott McMullen of the Walgreens loss prevention team told police Walker was ringing up one or two items in a customer’s cart and then letting them leave the store with other items that weren’t paid for. McMullen also said Walker would ring up sales, round the totals to the nearest dollar and then pocket the money after voiding transactions once customers left the store.
McMullen told police he had documentation showing the total value of the items Walker failed to charge for was $570.84, but McMullen said Walker told him he had been “under-ringing” items for about a year and the actual value was about $5,000.
A search of Walker’s bag by police turned up papers that contained “gang paraphernalia” related to the Bloods street gang, according to a police report.
Walker was processed and released on a summons.
