Two convenience store employees face fraud and identity theft charges after authorities say they took a customers debit card and used it.

22 year old Ashley McCall and 23 year old Stephanie Rivera of Kinston face the charges.

Lenoir County Sheriffs Deputies say the two worked at the Wilco-Hess store on Highway 11 when the thefts took place in late January.

Deputies say the women used a man's card at the Wilco-Hess in Kinston and in Ayden. They were both sent to jail on a 15 thousand dollar bond.

    What does Obama have to do with two thieves. These thugs stole a credit card and used it. You people are so quick to condemn Obama who hasn't even had a chance to do anything, yet you stood behind a man and slowly watched over the last 8 years as the country went downhill. You simple minded people never seize to amaze me. Put the blam where it belongs and leave Obama out of it. Let the man try to straighten this mess out and you can continue to sit on your posh behinds and complain while doing nothing.

    After the 4th time, I didn't go back. I guess I should make a political statement...OK. "Impeach Obama"...Now, I am just like the rest of you...

    Dwayne, you are right, and the rest of the government is the same way. This is what I like to call a politicians list of Top 10 things to do: # 1 Chase ever dollar that they see # 2 Lie to you and trick you into losing your money to them # 3 Dig into people's pockets/wallets and get their hands on every penny they see # 4 Give the citizens a hard time # 5 Go do anything that gets them more recognition and fame, eventually leading to more dollars coming in # 6 Act like they are above the law # 7 See how long they can get by with all the lies and stealing going on, until they look like Pinnochio # 8 Try to brag about an education from some lame Ivy League School # 9 Come up with some lame excuse about Global Warming coming in just to get more $ into their account # 10 Argue with other politicians on how this country should be ran Well that's it folks, gotta go. Lets see some more Top 10 lists from others. I wanna c a Top 10 list of jokes on politicians.

    Not condoning this behavior but, these two ladies will be punished more than Dashle and Geithner. By the way, the tax evader Geithner is now managing your money thanks to Obama.

    I am being real. I know firsthand about law enforcement officials that turn out bad. There is enough right there in Greenville. I have a cousin that had his arm broke at Dowdy Ficklen Stadium by a Kinston Police officer after ECU got their huge win, and he has filed a lawsuit for excessive force. It has put him out of work and has given him a hard time. Just cause someone is a cop does not mean that they are right. As far as the drug tests, I know what you mean, just did not have te room to put it up there, and a CIA background investigation is excessively outrageous. With the economy already as bad as it is, the truth will unfold if things get worse. Why is that? It's because everybody is going to have to lower their standard of living and some people will be a lot more pressured to steal. That will make it easier to tell who is good and who is bad and who is making the honest living and who is being dishonest. It will be easier to decide on who to trust, & yes their standards r high.

    Sam, point taken. I am simply pointing out that they do background checks and a pre-employment drug screen. What do you want them to do, have a CIA background investigation? It's a convenience store. Wilco Hess already maintains higher standards than most any other c-store chain in the area. They also treat their employees better than any c-store chain. There are those that are going to rob and pillage no matter what. Look at all the law enforcement officials that go bad. I am quite sure they go through a much more detailed background check than any convenience store clerk, and look where it gets us. Most recently, that Sergeant in Sharpsburg is a great example. You can't trust many wearing a badge and carrying weapons supposedly protecting us. It is not realistic to expect more of a c-store clerk.. Get real.

    Everybody listen to Ben. I caught somebody one time trying to snooker me out of ten dollars a few weeks ago. I have still been suspicious of people sometimes about my debit card. I think I may just may quit using my debit card to purchase stuff all together. This freaks me out. To VBush, they may have had clean backgrounds, but TradeWilcoHess gets too caught up under so many different stuff that random drug tests are probably not even thought of. I have a good friend who's dad, grandpa, and uncle are all high up in the organization. He told me that they say that busy and put in long hours sometimes. I do think they probably did end up drug testing those two girls. I also would have to guess that they maybe poor, broke, or a couple of stingy thieves. From all I know, it would not suprise me if they already have babies from someone and have to take care of things. You got to watch out these days for people. Lately, I feel like I have to be in the house to feel protected and it's scary.
