The investigation began after corporate employees from Kroger noticed the fraudulent transactions and contacted Gwinnett police. Police said Brown, who they believe worked at the fuel center, stole the money while an employee tasked with flagging fraudulent transactions was on vacation for two weeks.

In an emailed statement, a Kroger spokeswoman thanked the Gwinnett County Police Department for their assistance on the case but declined to comment on the ongoing investigation.

Brown was charged with one count of felony theft by taking and released from the Gwinnett Jail the same day on $11,200 bond, online records show.
