A Killeen video gamer is facing a felony theft charge after she allegedly stole from a local game exchange store.
Charice Milon Conroy, 23, was arraigned on her birthday, Tuesday, on a charge of theft over $1,500 but less than $20,000.
According to an arrest affidavit, police were called to the Game Xchange at 2501 S. W.S. Young Drive on Jan. 24 after the store manager was asked to check the in-store camera system to verify a recent credit transaction for $411.
“Using the in-store camera system, the victim was able to see one of her employees, the suspect, Charice Milon Conroy, ring up a store credit for $411 and then use that in-store credit to purchase a PlayStation 4 500 GB for $299.46 and a game for $42.46,” the affidavit stated. “After warnings, she confessed that she had looked through the older accounts of customers who had in-store credit and (was) cashing out the credit to purchase merchandise.”
The credit thefts, totaling $2,029.31, began Jan. 24 and ended May 18, the affidavit stated.
Conroy was booked into the Bell County Jail on Saturday and given a $20,000 bond by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.
