An employee of Academy Sports in Shreveport was arrested Thursday for stealing over $6,000 by making fraudulent returns, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

Chasity Jimmerson, 28, is accused of identifying items that were paid for with cash, then having a cashier return the item on a register, even though neither the item nor customer were in the store. Jimmerson pocketed $6,039 in returns through the scheme.

Caddo Sheriff’s Detective Casey Jones booked Jimmerson into the Shreveport City Jail for felony theft. She is expected to be transferred to the Caddo Correctional Center later today.

The investigation is continuing.
