BOTHELL, Wash. - A father-daughter duo is accused of stealing more than $39,000 from a Bothell Home Depot.
Detectives say the daughter, who worked at the store, would return “ghost items” and credit them to a gift card.
Police say the daughter would then give the card, with an average balance of $600 to $800, to her father, who would then sell them to an Everett pawn shop for cash.
A Home Depot loss prevention employee noticed the fraudulent activity and alerted police on Monday.
Police say the employee showed police a list of 46 suspicious transactions.
A Bothell police document said the daughter’s boyfriend may have been involved in one of the fraudulent transactions.
