D.C. mayor-elect's credit card stolen

By Washington Post editors

The Washington Examiner reports that a drugstore employment allegedly stole D.C. mayor-elect Vincent Gray's credit card on Thanksgiving day.

Gray left his wallet on the counter of a CVS, and authorities told the Examiner that video surveillance showed 22-year-old Tamika Garris, a clerk at the store on Naylor Road SE, picking it up. A couple of hours later, the cameras showed Garris using Gray's credit card to buy $13.52 in cigarettes. She later went to a liquor store and spent about $25 there.

Garris was charged with credit card fraud on Wednesday. Gray spokeswoman Doxie McCoy confirmed that Gray's wallet was stolen, but declined to comment further.

"a drugstore employment"


I understand spelling errors every now and then but seriously. The Post needs to get better about this stuff. It's really getting out of hand.

Crime of opportunity. Don't leave your keys in the ignition. Don't leave your wallet on the counter at the drug store. Don't leave your front door unlocked.

Some young person may not be able to resist the temptation, and then he (or she) will encounter the criminal justice system.
