The Trion Walmart called the Chattanooga County Sheriff’s Department this past Sunday in order to report a scam involving an employee who had allegedly stolen gift cards.

Reports claim that Walmart identified an employee who had been using fake coupons to obtain gift cards totaling over $2000 in value.

The manager of Walmart stated that they were going to confront the employee that same day but the employee left early before they had the chance to.

The case is now in the hands of an investigator.
