A Target store supervisor blamed hard financial times after Metro police charged him with skimming more than $9,500 from the retail stores nightly cash drops.

A routine audit of nearly 20 cash drops allegedly showed that between July 19 and Sept. 13 a total of $9,654 came up short, all the employee number belonging to David M. Crawford, 38.

According to police, when confronted about the shortages by store officials, Crawford took $400 from that night’s drop out of his pocket and said that he believed he’d only taken between $5,000 and $6,000 from the store at 780 Old Hickory Blvd. since mid-August.

Police arrested Crawford Sept. 14. He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 6.

That is the Target store near my house. Manager Crawford messed up because this store is full of attractive female customers.
