RENTON, Wash. (AP) - A convenience store manager in the Seattle suburb of Renton says she’s in shock after store surveillance cameras recorded a previously helpful employee stealing about $10,000 worth of cash and merchandise during his last few solo shifts, then vanishing.

KOMO-TV reports (https://is.gd/6g9mrl ) that AM/PM store manager Maria Lane told police she thinks the worker she knew as Josh Canterbury started stealing Friday night, continued Saturday night and finished up Sunday night and early Monday. He worked the graveyard shift alone.

Lane says the employee “just took everything he could,” finally bringing in a duffel bag during his last shift. He showed up three months ago, saying he was from Ohio.

Workers say he taped an “out of order” sign on a credit card reader so customers would pay in cash. Video even shows him giving away store candy.

Why didn’t he worry about the cameras? Lane says police can’t find a record that “Josh Canterbury” exists.
