Gainesville Man Accused of Stealing Co-Worker’s Debit Card, Going Shopping

I’ve heard of borrowing a few dollars from a co-worker, or even a car. But how about somebody stealing a co-worker’s debit card, and then allegedly charging more than $2000 worth of goods on it?

That’s what police say 28 year old Thomas Williams, of Gainesville, did. Police say Williams–and another of the victim’s co-workers–balled out: they were allegedly caught on video surveillance ringing up charges in at least half a dozen stores, including Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, GameStop, Ross, Publix and other stores totaling $2,365.95.

The Gainesville Sun reports that Williams is unemployed, which is probably not a surprise, given the circumstances.

There’s no word on the actual place these alleged debit card desperadoes once worked. In any case, I don’t think I’d apply for a job there, would you?

Williams was charged with 4 felonies, including grand theft and credit card fraud. His bail has been set at $20,000.
