A young man is awaiting his trial in Scott Superior Court on one count of Class A misdemeanor theft involving Red Bull caffeine drinks. It isn’t the normal type of theft, however, that landed Andrew Tyler Belcher, 20, Scottsburg in trouble.
He stands accused of having altered the prices of Red Bull drinks while on duty as a cashier at the Scottsburg Wal-Mart.
According to the probable cause affidavit prepared by Scottsburg policeman Sgt. Brian Hall, Belcher allegedly admitted to the store’s asset protection personnel that, when his friends brought drinks through his line, he’d over-ride the normal price per can. That meant his buddies were getting the pricey drinks for 99 cents each.
Belcher purportedly told authorities that he’d been doing these favors for his friends for a couple of months, costing Wal-Mart perhaps a little under $100.
The young man allegedly told managers that he knew what he was doing was against store policy. Instead of a job, Belcher now has a trial date of January 5 in Superior Court. A public defender was appointed to the case, and the defendant filed a cash bond of $500 to obtain his release. Belcher has been ordered to stay out of Wal-Mart.
