MEMPHIS, TN (WREG) – A Tennessee woman is facing charges after police say she stole up to $60,000 worth of Nike merchandise from the DHL warehouse where she worked.
Chamon Davis worked for the delivery service’s Memphis-area warehouse before his arrest on Tuesday.
Davis is accused of printing duplicate tracking numbers for the items and then using the additional tracking numbers to ship the stolen goods to different addresses, investigators say.
A police affidavit revealed that Davis was arrested by Nike investigators. It is unclear how long the case had been going on.
Nike was able to recover $10,000 worth of goods that were due for delivery on Monday.
After being questioned by detectives, Davis reportedly confessed to the crime and has since been charged with theft of property, police said.
Davis was released from jail Tuesday morning and is due in court next month.
Nike and DHL did not immediately respond when asked to comment.
