A 24-year-old Best Buy employee was arrested Wednesday after allegedly stealing $1,100 from the Empire Center store through fraudulent returns, police said.

Since July, the Arleta woman – identified as Diana Tran – reportedly made nine fraudulent returns and made off with $1,100, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

Tran was arrested on suspicion of grand theft. She was released from custody after posting $20,000 bail and is due in court next month.
