Say What Now? New Jersey Security Guard Stole $100,000 on His FIRST Day of Work

19-year-old Larry Brooks got himself a new job as a security officer and wasted no time getting to the money.

It was his first day at a cash vault and armored car company and Larry stole $100,000 before he even had a chance to clock out.


Larry Brooks, 19, of Elizabeth, who worked for Garda, was arrested after the theft was captured by company surveillance cameras, according to township police Chief Anthony Manna.

Brooks was charged with theft for allegedly taking the cash Tuesday evening, authorities said. Security officers reportedly found $85,900 in a vehicle parked in Elizabeth before police were alerted, the chief added.

Manna said there was no definitive conclusion of what happened to the remaining stolen money.

Garda, which has a Fairfield facility, did not return a message seeking comment Thursday afternoon.

Clearly he didn’t think this through…at all.
