Dollar General clerk arrested in theft of more than $2,000 at Fruitland Park store

Shatina Darlene McMullen

A 20-year-old clerk at a Dollar General store in Fruitland Park has been arrested after allegedly stealing more than $2,000 from her employer.

Shatina Darlene McMullen, of Leesburg, was arrested Wednesday on warrants charging her with grand theft and fraud.

She had been caught on surveillance video on Dec. 15 repeatedly scanning manufacturers’ coupons to “run up” values that were then transferred to Visa gift cards. She told the shift manager that there was a problem with the system and requested the ability to override the system.

The loss of revenue to the store was $2,762.

McMullen was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $4,000 bond.
