RALEIGH Police Monday night arrested a 19-year-old woman at a Dick's Sporting Goods store on Sumner Boulevard, where they said she had been running a scam using discarded receipts to return merchandise for money.
According to arrests warrants, police believe Nicolette Raijene Neal of 4702 Smarty Jones Drive in Knightdale started going to the Dick’s store at Tarrymore Square on New Year’s Eve.
In filing 13 counts of obtaining property by false pretenses, police said Neal would find receipts that customers had discarded, then get something on the receipt and return it for cash.
The warrants did not say how much police believe Neal got.
Most of the returns were made in the evening, though two last Friday were in the afternoon, the warrants said.
Neal was being held in lieu of $15,000 for a court appearance.
