Dunkin’ Donuts manager allegedly hired fake employee, pocketed checks

A Florida Dunkin’ Donuts manager was busted for hiring a “fictitious” employee — and pocketing all of the checks that worker received, according to new reports.

Markia Nelson, 29, who works at the franchise’s location in Largo, a city in Pinellas County, hired the fake worker on May 15, WFLA reported.

From May 16 straight through Saturday, Nelson did all she could to keep up the image that the employee was showing up for work every day — clocking in and out for the “worker,” logging a total of 235 hours, according to an arrest report obtained by the outlet.

The “employee” earned $8.65 an hour — for a total of $1,610.84, the station reported.
