Cashier Charged With Stealing DC Mayor-Elect's Wallet


An employee at a Washington DC drugstore has been arrested and charged after police say she stole DC mayor-elect Vince Gray's credit card and later forged his signature to purchase items. Twenty-two-year-old Tamika Garris was working as a cashier at the CVS on Naylor Road when she allegedly pocketed Gray's plastic on Thanksgiving Day.

According to court documents, surveillance footage shows Gray leaving the wallet behind on the counter at around 2:30 p.m. at the CVS location in which Garris worked. Garris is said to be seen picking the lost wallet up and examining its contents for "several minutes." Police say that shortly before 5:00 p.m., cameras caught Garris using Gray's credit card at the register of another employee to purchase nearly $14 worth of cigarettes.
