Talk about nerve.
Authorities say 34-year-old Aaron Evans tried to pull a scam at the Sears store at the Augusta Mall last week. He walked into the store, picked up two belts and a wallet off the shelf and went to a cashier to return the items, a report states. He said he didn't have a receipt, so the cashier processed a return and gave him a gift card for the amount of the items. Preferring cash, the man then walked around the store and tried to sell the gift card to other customers.
Luckily, an employee saw the man on surveillance and called deputies, who arrived in time to bust Mr. Evans for theft by deception.
