Police in the city of New York have arrested a man who they say stole $110,000 worth of merchandise from a customer.
The New York Post reports that police say 25-year-old Jhonny James Rios of Long Island was arrested Tuesday on charges of mail fraud, wire fraud, and identity theft.
According to police, Rios allegedly told the clerk that he had the $110K in cash, but then took a $20 bill out of his pocket and left the store without paying.
Police say the store employee, who did not want to be identified, said Rios was the store’s only employee.
When she went to return the money, she discovered the $40,000 had been stolen.
The Post reports the clerk was able to track the money’s whereabouts to a storage locker in her home.
Rios’ criminal history includes two drug arrests and one assault conviction.
Rios is due back in court Dec. 4.
