A security officer at a cash vault and transportation company in New Jersey was arrested for allegedly stealing $100,000 from the business on his first day of work.
According to Fairfield police, 19-year-old Larry Brooks from Elizabeth, who worked for Garda, was identified as the suspect after the theft was captured by company surveillance cameras.
Brooks was charged Thursday with theft for allegedly taking the cash Tuesday evening, authorities said.
Before police were called upon, the security team apparently recovered nearly $86,000 of the stolen money from a car parked in Elizabeth, N.J, where Brooks lives.
Brooks had apparently been hired by Garda a day before the theft.
