DETROIT (AP) - A former armored car company worker has been released pending trial and placed on a tether after being accused of stealing more than a half-million dollars from a truck parked in Detroit’s Greektown district.

The Detroit News and Free Press report David Troupe had a detention hearing Friday in U.S. District Court. There, Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said some money was found at his Detroit home but at least $500,000 remained missing.

Defense attorney Leon Weiss says Troupe denies the charges, and adds money found at his client’s home might not be from the robbery.

The complaint says the driver allowed Troupe into the truck after he said the wrong bag was taken into a casino for an ATM delivery. Troupe walked away with several bags containing nearly $580,000.
