PORT RICHEY — Timothy D. June told investigators he is a new father and, when Home Depot cut his hours in February, he hatched a plan to steal money from the register to support his baby and girlfriend, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states.
June, a 21-year-old cashier at the Port Richey store on U.S. 19, said he took customers' receipts and logged them into the system as though the customers returned items, then June pocketed the cash, the report states. He said he believed he stole about $8,500. An internal audit revealed the financial discrepancy, authorities said.
June, of Hudson, was arrested Thursday on a charge of scheme to defraud. He was released from the Pasco jail Friday on $5,000 bail.
