A Dairy Queen employee's blizzard of fraudulent credit card charges has landed her in jail, Naples police said.

Emily Stice, 20, of the 200 block of Ospreys Landing, East Naples, was arrested Tuesday by Naples police on 47 charges — 28 of fraudulent use of credit cards, 18 of scheming to defraud and one of grand theft. Police said Stice would run credit card charges using a fake card and take cash out of the register equal to the charges made at the 9th Street North Dairy Queen.

The charges, made in August and September 2011, totaled $844.50, a police report said. A review of store records found the charges were only made when Stice was in charge of the cash register, the report said.

The store's owner told police he confronted Stice, who agreed to pay back the money, but no restitution had been paid as of Tuesday.

Stice remains in jail on $60,000 bond. She also faces single charges of possessing counterfeit cred cards, grand theft and illegal use of credit cards from an unrelated December 2011 case.
