The theft was uncovered when the registers were checked for accounting purposes. Though the theft was discovered on April 21, a loss prevention officer did not approach the employee until April 24 -- after the internal investigation was concluded.
According to the loss prevention officer, the employee issued a total of $2,080 in unauthorized discounts to select customers and friends. The employee, Bryan Guevara, reportedly provided a written statement to the loss prevention officer which was in turn provided to Gwinnett County Police. The statement read in part, "I admit to giving unauthorized discount that range from $10 to $15 [sic] that added up to $2,080. I understand that was against company policy and against the law."
Based on the information provided, Guevara was transported to the Gwinnett County Jail where he was booked on a single charge of theft by deception. He was released later that day on a $2,950 bond.
