Item returns fraud at Target
A man took items he hadn't purchased and tried to return them for cash at Target on Dec. 23, police said.
The man was in the store at about 5:20 pm and took three items from the housewares section of the store, then went to the customer service desk. He took out an old receipt that matched the items he chose and tried to return them for cash. He was able to return two of the items, but then he was stopped by store loss prevention officers. He apologized to the officers and told them that he just needed extra money for Christmas, returning the money he'd received. However, he was taken to county jail.
