After forgetting to return a VHS tape by Sabrin the Teenage Witch more than 20 years ago, a woman has felony embezzlement charges.
Caron McBride, from Norman, Oklahoma is reported to have lent the tape back from the local video rental shop, Movie Place, in 1999. As it happened 22 years ago, however, McBride now has no recollection of this ever. Whether she remembers this or not, McBride is now accused of ‘felony embezzlement’ of the tape.
Talk with Sabrina
Speaking to new jersey times she said: “I went to change my driver’s license, during this Covid thing you had to make an appointment, and so, I sent them an email (and) they sent me an email and they told me… that I had an issue in Oklahoma and this was the reference number for me to call this number and I did.”
The number was for the District Attorney’s office in Cleveland, who informed McBride that charges had been brought against her in Oklahoma but, at first, she did not believe what it was told her.
“It’s been about the VHS tape she told me and I had to repeat it because I thought it’s insane,” McBride said. “It’s a kidding girl, right? She was not kidding.” She was not kidding. Online documents show that McBride was charged with felony embezzlement in March 2000. She believes that the tape was actual ranted by a man who she used to live with who had two young daughters as she has never seen the show in her entire life.
“I mean, I didn’t try to deceive anyone about Teenage Witch Samantha (Sabrina). I swear,” adds McBride.
Since then she has realised that it may be the reason why she has been released from several jobs over the years because she has a criminal record with the employers who have carried out a criminal history check.
Even though the company to which the tape belonged has been shut down since then, the police could still prosecute McBride and a warrant was issued. In this respect, common sense prevailed and since then, the DA has decided to drop the McBride case and will work to clear up its record.
That’s a lesson for anyone who didn’t return Blockbusters with a VHS tape in the 1990s.
