A Publix cashier said he stole nearly $10,000 worth of gift cards to get extra money for a baby on the way, according to Orange County authorities.

Deputies said Nicholas McCaskill stole the cards from the customer service desk at one Publix and then used them at other Publix stores to get Visa gift cards that can be used anywhere.

However, McCaskill later admitted to buying a watch and an iPad.
