CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Chattanooga Police arrested an Amazon Fulfillment employee for stealing more than $60,000.
Just before 11 pm on May 4th, Chattanooga Police responded to the Amazon Fulfillment Center off Discovery Drive about a large theft.
When officers arrived, they spoke with an employee at "Loss Prevention" who said his associate, identified as Noah Page, was returning monetary goods to an unknown individual without having the items physically returned to the facility.
CPD says the loss on May 4th sums up to more than $159,000.
Police met with Page who said he was contacted through text messages by an individual Page identified as "Ralph."
"Ralph," asked Page if he would use his RRMAS, a scan code provided for a return.
Page told police he agreed to return several items in exchange for money.
Page told police he got $3,500 out of the deal and the money was sent through a Bank of America app.
According to an affidavit we obtained, "Ralph" paid Page by Bitcoin. After the transaction, Page was able to cash Bitcoin and gain $3,000 on one return.
Chattanooga Police confirmed most items returned were notepads, iPhones, and computers.
Page admitted to the police what he did was wrong and will accept appropriate consequences.
Page is charged with criminal conspiracy and theft over $60,000.
We have reached out to Amazon for a statement on the theft.
We have also reached out to Chattanooga Police to see if any other employees were involved.
This is a developing story. Depend on us to keep you informed.
