A security guard employed by cash vault and transport company Garda stole $100,000 in cash in his first day on the job, police in New Jersey say.
Fairfield police say 19-year-old Larry Brooks was caught on the company’s surveillance cameras stealing $100,000 while working.
The company’s security officers were able to recover about $86,000 from a car parked in Elizabeth, where Brooks lives, before the company contacted police.
Brooks was arrested on a charge of second-degree theft, then released on his own recognizance.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Brooks had retained an attorney.
