The manager of the Islamorada United Parcel Service warehouse called deputies when he noticed an that Ipad and Iphone were missing that had arrived at the warehouse for delivery, according to a news release from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
The manager suspected an employee may have swiped the items, deputies said.
Just as detectives were setting up an undercover sting to nab the bandit, another employee told his supervisor he saw employee Shuwana Nicole Horne-Green open a package of cookies meant for a customer delivery, the release stated.
Horne-Green then allegedly shared the cookies with her co-workers, telling them she’d bought the cookies earlier in the day.
But apparantly she wasn't a smart cookie.
But the supervisor found the cookie box in a trash can...empty.
Further investigation revealed the suspect had changed the package’s delivery status to “receiver moved, not delivered/returned to shipper” in the UPS computer system, according to the report.
Detectives said Horne-Green, 35, later 'fessed up to opening the package of cookies and also admitted to swiping the Ipad, which she said she sold to someone at the Collier County Casino for $250.00.
But she reportedly denied any involvement in stealing the Iphone.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
