Former Little League Concession Manager Accused of Stealing Pepsi Points
The woman was charged after Pasco deputies say she cashed in the points for $600 in gift cards to department stores.
A former Land O' Lakes Little League concession manager was arrested Thursday for redeeming Pepsi Points that belonged to the organization.
The Land O' Lakes Little League receives points for bulk purchases of Pepsi products through the Pepsi Points program, which the organization then redeems for gift cards and other various items.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Kerry Lynn Ellis of 23340 Orleans Place had the Pepsi account linked to her email address, and used the reward points for her own benefit, redeeming them for $600 in department store gift cards between November 2011 and March 2012.
A current board member recently discovered that the points had been used by Ellis and reported it to the sheriff's office this week.
When contacted by a deputy, Ellis "claimed she did not think it would be an issue," an incident report stated.
Ellis, 39, was charged with scheming to defraud. She was released Friday, June 8, from the Land O' Lakes jail on $5,000 bond.
