Pasco deputies: Publix cashier pocketed man’s credit card

HUDSON — The last place the man remembered seeing his credit card was at Publix. He checked his account and saw $ 411.90 in unexplained charges.

Deputies said a cashier at the Publix at 14851 State Road 52 saw that the card had been left behind April 14 — so she decided to use it.

The 16-year-old started out small to test the card, a sheriff’s report says, with a 49-cent Butterfinger. Then she bought several gift cards, the report says.

Deputies say she later told them she was using the card for gas and car insurance.

The Times is withholding the girl’s name because of her age.

She was arrested on a charge of fraudulent use of a credit card. She was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center in Land O’Lakes.

Representatives from Publix did not immediately return a call to confirm her employment status.

Margate tightens credit card policy after questionable charges
News from Sun-Sentinel:

Margate Vice Mayor David McLean angered city commissioners last month when it was revealed that he spent almost $ 1,400 on what he called city business – including boarding his dog, grocery shopping and taking residents to bars.

The City Commission publicly reprimanded McLean for the charges, which he still defends as all part of city business.

The commission acknowledged that he did nothing illegal because he ultimately reimbursed the city for all of the purchases, but the incident led to changes in the city code to prevent future credit card misuse.

“I don’t like public servants who abuse power, and I believe he abused his power,” Commissioner Lesa Peerman said. “That’s not what the credit cards were for. We can’t use them for our own personal use. If they were city expenses, then why did he pay them back?”
