Default family forgot to return a VHS tape 22 years ago

In 2021, an unreturned VHS tape can haunt your job and life


https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/26/2...-teenage-witch

Ever mysteriously lost a job opportunity? Did they treat you like a criminal? Better check to see if your family forgot to return a VHS tape 22 years ago!

As utterly ridiculous as that sounds, it’s apparently the true story of Texas woman Caron McBride, who had a warrant out for her arrest in Oklahoma for felony embezzlement — all because a movie store thought she rented a copy of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in 1999 and never bothered to bring it back. Never mind that the store in question (“Movie Place”) closed in 2008, or that VHS is such a dated tech that even the last Japanese manufacturer finally stopped producing the players five years back.

McBride told local Fox News affiliate KOKH (via Gizmodo) that she had no idea this tape even existed and never would have picked it — “just not my cup of tea” — but thinks maybe a man she used to live with at the time could have rented it for his two kids. She only found out about the out-of-state warrant when she tried to change the name on her driver’s license after getting married in Texas.

“She told me it was over the VHS tape and I had to make her repeat it because I thought, this is insane. This girl is kidding me, right? She wasn’t kidding,” McBride told KOKH.

Death Penalty or Life Imprisonment. Get this criminal off the street.

Yeah, this smells like BS - Felony Embezzlement is when an employee makes off with the company's money. This would be a misdemeanor theft charge, at the most. Doubt if the police would even be interested. Store would simply put them on a 'No Rent' list and be done with it.
