According to police, when this enterprising teenager got a job at Georgia Kröger, he got the right to work.
Gwinnett County Police said 19-year-old Trey Brown scammed more than $ 980,000 from the Duluth, Georgia, grocery store where he worked in December and January.
Brown made more than 40 returns for non-existent items and put them on credit cards, police said. Returns ranged in price from $ 75 to over $ 87,000.
He used the money to buy two vehicles, clothes, shoes and guns, according to police.
The scandal was so horrific that it caught the attention of corporate Kroger employees. After noticing the fake transaction, he contacted the police department.
Brown is facing charges of theft.
Police said Brown arrested one of the vehicles purchased before the money was arrested, but “large sums” were returned after his arrest.
