1/2 at 4:19 p.m. A former employee of Sam’s Club has lost her job and been charged with theft by unauthorized taking or transfer after allegedly bilking both customers and the big-box store for gift cards worth more than $1,000. Police say that when customers brought gift cards to the register, Haily Googins, 19, of Portland, would scan the card handed to her by the customer but write the value on another, unactivated card. She’d then give the dud to the paying customer and take the credit-filled one for herself. Police say Sam’s Club got wise to Googins’ scheme when customers kept showing up with the bogus cards.
