28-year-old Colin Beason has, once again, been caught doing return fraud at a retail store that employed him. In 2019, we covered his felony theft arrest for pocketing $1800 in cash from fraudulent returns from GameStop.

Beason signed a confession in the case, and because of the prior deal with DA Funk, has no prior conviction.
