MILTON, Ga. — A Milton employee was arrested Nov. 29 for allegedly fraudulently reducing the price of an item so he could buy it cheaply.

Workers at Fry’s Electronics on Ga. 9 told police that Joseph Darwin Steen, 29, of North Park Lane, Alpharetta, used a manager’s computer to lower the price of a car stereo from $799.99 to $299.99. He then allegedly bought the equipment for the reduced price.

Surveillance footage allegedly showed Steen committing the crime. Steen was arrested for theft by deception.
