Man helps himself to cash registerOfficers are also investigating a larceny from Therma-Scan on Tuesday. Employees told police they found an unknown man behind the reception desk with the cash register open at about 4:30 p.m., reports said. There was no employee at the desk at the time.
However, an employee that reported the incident said he confronted the suspect and the man ran off with all of the cash inside the register. The amount taken was not disclosed in reports.
The man is described as black, and in his mid-30s. He had short black hair and stood about 5-feet-10 or 5-feet-11 with a slender build, according to reports. He wore dark-colored pants, an untucked dark-colored shirt and had a Bluetooth in his ear.
Police said he may have driven away in a gold-colored, older model four-door vehicle, possibly a Buick.
