Former Walmart Cashier Arrested On 14 Felony Charges

CLEVELAND – A former cashier at Walmart, at 5141 NC 42 West, in the Cleveland community has been arrested on fourteen felony charges.

Braxton Jamal Yarborough, age 29, of NC Highway 55, Willow Spring was arrested February 13, after Johnston County deputies were called to the business.

According to authorities, Yarborough would ring up a customer’s transaction and the customer would leave. At a later time, he allegedly reprinted the sales receipt and processed the cash-out for the items, giving the impression that the merchandise was being returned. Seven transactions totaling $334.89 were cashed out between January and February 2024, authorities allege. Yarborough kept the money after each voided transaction.

Yarborough was charged with seven counts of larceny by an employee and seven counts of obtaining property by false pretense. He was given a $7,500 bond.
