Duty free former employee charged with theft

A former employee of Lauren Duty Free Shop at the Philip Goldson International Airport has been charged with false accounting and theft. Police allege that over a period of almost a year Charles Solis Jr. stole over four thousand dollars by altering customer credit card receipts. He reportedly added an extra one in front of a customer’s total sale. He would then pocket the difference from the cash sales. Since everything would balance at the end of the day, no one noticed the ongoing theft until a customer complained that she had been over billed. Put on the alert the management brought in the police to investigate. Solis immediately resigned, but was picked up by police on April twenty first and charged. He is out on bail.
