DETROIT (AP) - Authorities say an employee of armored car company is responsible for the theft of a bag containing $20,000 in cash in Detroit.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 33-year-old Charles Samuel Stewart faces charges including embezzlement and larceny following Tuesday’s theft from a Total Armored Car truck. Investigators say he put the money in his personal vehicle.

He was arrested shortly afterward. Court records didn’t yet list a lawyer who might comment on behalf of Stewart, who is due in court Friday.

Meanwhile, authorities have been investigating the theft Nov. 27 of more than $500,000 from a Loomis armored truck in Detroit’s Greektown entertainment district by a man wearing a security guard’s shirt. The Detroit News reports police and the FBI say that case is separate from Tuesday’s theft.
