Aparna Krishnan had a court date today where she faced 3 charges of Credit Card Fraud, and Theft, from when she worked at Burger Up. Krishnan admitted to taking the wallet of a co-worker, containing a drivers license, cash, and multiple credit cards. Her court date was reset for 11/29 but let’s recap what happened to get us to this point.
Krishnan stole a co-worker’s wallet from Burger Up and took an Uber to Aldi’s where she used the victim’s Mastercard at Aldi’s to make one purchase for $24.20, leaves the store, and then returns for a second purchase of $65.79. When asked by detectives about the transactions, Krishnan stated “I regretted it the moment I did it”. Earlier on the same day, Krishnan used the victim’s credit card at the Marathon Gas Station on the 1100 block of Woodland, where she made one transaction, left the store, and once again went back inside to make a second purchase using the card. All events were recorded on video and admitted to by Krishnan.
Krishnan was already on probation in Nashville from a DUI in May of 2016 (at 11th / Gartland, no surprise!)
