MELBOURNE, Florida – Police say a Dillard’s employee was arrested Friday after stealing from the store at the Melbourne Square Mall.

Theondra Loyd, 23, was charged with Grand Theft and Scheme to Defraud after a manager observed her conducting three fraudulent returns, according to the report.

The theft was also caught on video surveillance, the arrest affidavit said.

“The video shows the employee on the computer entering the POP number manually and complete a return without any merchandise present. The refund process is completed and a balance is transferred to a gift card,” Melbourne police said.

Officers arrested Loyd at Dillard’s and transported her to the Brevard County Jail.
