BOSTON (Reuters) - U.S. authorities charged a former employee of the national tax-collection agency with fraud Thursday, accusing him of stealing $330,000 in goods from stores and then returning them for store credit.

Prosecutors said Robert Dooley, a former Internal Revenue Service clerk, carried out the operation at Home Depot Inc.stores in nine states from 2002 through 2005.

According to papers filed in Boston federal court, Dooley preyed upon a store policy that allowed customers to return merchandise without a receipt if they showed photo identification. He would show store clerks his IRS badge and on occasion said that as an IRS employee he was "trustworthy," prosecutors alleged.

Just like soldiers are trained to kill, and clowns are trained to make people laugh, anyone working for the IRS is taught how to steal.
