Kevonte Jones of Pontiac was arrested by Bloomfield Township police on Wednesday and arraigned in 48th District Court on a charge of Embezzlement – more than $100 and less than $1,000.

Police say Jones was working a cash register at a Target store, on Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Township, in April when he was spotted by a loss prevention officer — on more than one occasion — scanning Xbox Live cards while on duty and then pocketing them.

His register drawer was short on the dates involved, and the total loss was $300, according to investigators.

Bond for Jones was set at $5,000, 10 percent. He will be back in court for a hearing on October 5.
