worker charged with theft in return scheme in Ocala
Chances are you made a return this holiday season. If it was in Marion County,
you might have unknowingly been helping one Walmart worker line her pocketbooks.
Yezenia Degross, 19, worked in Customer Service at the Walmart on State Road 200
in Marion County up until her arrest this week. She told investigators how her
scheme worked. According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office report, she said
beginning in late November she was making returns for customers and keeping
their receipts. After customers were gone, she'd pull out those receipts and
ring up some additional returns, keeping the cash herself. But it turns out the
cameras were watching, and deputies say she pocketed more than $5,500.

4 charged with passing counterfeit bills at Frazer mall
Frazer police Chief Terry Kuhns said an investigation revealed that the
suspects, all of whom are believed to have lived together in the Bronx, spent
more than $2,000 worth of bogus cash at upward of 20 stores in the Pittsburgh
Mills shopping complex and other areas. Kuhns said the suspects had been in the
area using the counterfeit money for two or three days. Police allege that
Aguero would supply fake $100 bills to the other three, who would use the bills
to buy inexpensive items and collect the real change. Police learned about the
scheme around 1 p.m. Saturday when they were contacted by a retail store
employee in the Pittsburgh Mills mall who believed to be in possession of a
counterfeit $100 bill. Police determined the bill was fake through black light
testing and began searching for the suspects based on several retailers'
descriptions. Frazer police found the four trying to leave the mall parking lot
in a black Dodge Charger about an hour later and pulled the car over. In it,
police say, they found merchandise from several of the stores that had reported
receiving counterfeit bills and close to $1,000 worth of the fake cash on the
