Gilberto Escaramilla, a Texas juvenile justice department employee, is facing a felony theft charge after he confessed to intercepting food deliveries to the jail, and then selling the products to his own customers. Authorities arrested Escaramilla last week.
The con came crashing down when Escaramilla missed a day of work due to a doctors appointment. A delivery driver showed up with 800 pounds of fajitas, but the department at the juvenile center didn't serve that type of food. The mix-up led to an investigation in which authorities checked older invoices, uncovering the fraud.
