Taken from incident reports by Kitsap County Sheriff's Deputies:
A 30-year-old South Kitsap man admitted to cashing in on about $500 in fake merchandise returns and stealing another $500 in women’s clothes from the Silverdale Old Navy store, where he works.
He completed purchases with actual customers, but didn’t provide the receipts for the transactions.
Then, when the customers left, he used the receipts to perform fake merchandise returns on the items they had just bought, giving himself the cash refund.
The store's loss prevention team caught the man making the phony transactions on video, and confronted him about it.
He allegedly wrote and signed a confession saying that he did it, and he also admitted to stealing about $500-worth of women’s clothing from the store because.
He likes to cross-dress, he says, and didn’t want anyone to find out.
Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputies escorted him to jail, where he was booked for second-degree theft. His bail was initially set at $10,000.
