21-year-old William Driver III was jailed this week on an outstanding warrant from December of 2020, charging him with felony theft from PetCo, his former employer. Store Manager Jay Lowery and Loss Prevention Officer Randall Sneed confronted Driver about his thefts, and he confessed to a fraudulent return scheme. Court records detail that between September 28th, 2020, and October 5th, 2020, Driver would use legitimate customer receipts and process fake returns, taking the cash from the registers, and keeping it for himself. He was an employee for 9 months before this happened. The total amount lost by the store was $1,188.96.
William David Driver III was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 21, charged with felony theft. A commissioner set his bond at $1,000 and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
