FAIRFIELD, New Jersey — This guy didn’t waste any time.
A New Jersey armored car guard has been charged with walking off with $100,000 in cash on his first day on the job.
Police in Fairfield, New Jersey say they got a call on Wednesday from the private security firm, Garda, saying that a new employee, Larry Brooks, 19, had been caught on camera pocketing a giant pile of cash.
The case against Brooks appeared pretty open and shut when security officers from the firm went to his house in Elizabeth and found $85,900 in cash stashed in his car. It’s not clear what happened to the rest of the money.
Brooks was charged with second degree theft and was released on his own recognizance.
