FORT MILL -- Police arrested another Charlotte teen employee of Carowinds caught stealing from the amusement park.
A 17-year-old employee at a food stand inside the Fort Mill-area park told officers he had taken about $500 during the past two years, according to a York County Sheriffs Office report.
The teen was arrested last week with $47 in his pockets. He admitted to stealing the money by rounding customers purchases at the Carolina Fries stand to the next dollar, the report said.
Instead of entering the purchases into the register, he pocketed the cash. The teen told officers he used the money to buy clothes and shoes.
He was charged with breach of trust.
