— A Rock Hill AutoZone employee is charged with breach of trust after police say he made several voided transactions and kept the cash for himself.

Marion Ross Lewis Jr., 32, of 1246 Honeybee Trail in Fort Mill, was released from jail Wednesday on a $2,000 personal recognizance bond after he admitted to police he got away with $150 from the AutoZone on East Main Street over the course of four months, a Rock Hill Police report states.

An AutoZone regional loss prevention officer told police that an internal investigation showed Lewis made several voided transactions starting on Oct. 13, 2012, the report states. Officials watched video footage of Lewis voiding out the transactions and customers taking the items they paid for.

Lewis told police that the accusations were correct, the report states.

Last month, police arrested 42-year-old David Eric Stephenson, an employee at the AutoZone on Cherry Road, and charged him with breach of trust after a store manager saw video surveillance of Stephenson creating false returns and pocketing the money. He admitted to stealing at least $4,000 over an 18-month span.
