Student causes disturbance on bus
According to a deputy’s report, the employee deposited a payroll check electronically from his phone in June. Since then, other duplicate checks from the company were deposited and the business suffered losses totaling about $4,000. The employee worked for the company for one year before resigning, the report said.
The break-in occurred about 5 a.m. when someone threw a rock through the window, breaking glass and activating an alarm at the business located at 1090 S. Telegraph Rd., according to a deputy’s report. The offender then reached through the hole above the door handle and unlocked the door. A surveillance camera showed two unidentified males walk into the store and then turned around and ran north from the venue. A third suspect stayed outside. Nothing appeared to be missing from the store, the report said.
