Listen Now: Identity-Less Employee Robs Connecticut Gas Station Blind
Police in Connecticut are looking for a man who took his employee discount to the extreme.
Recently the owner of a Go On Gas store in Hamden, Connecticut hired a new employee, trained him and handed over the keys for his first shift. Unfortunately for the owner, instead of helping customers, his new employee just helped himself.
Police say before his shift was done, he had taken off with seventeen thousand dollars worth of merchandise and cash. The owner told police he noticed something wrong when he checked the store’s surveillance cameras. That’s when he noticed the employee was nowhere in sight. When he went to the store, he noticed the missing cash and called the police.
Among the missing items, lottery tickets and eighty-nine boxes of cigarettes. And here’s where it gets tricky. The employee in question also made off with his new hire folder. This contained all personal information including his name. And since he has only just started the manager can’t remember who he was.
Now police are trying to track him down before he finds his next “now hiring” sign.
