CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A messenger for an armored car company has acknowledged stealing $6,500 from an Albertson’s grocery store in Casper.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Monday (https://bit.ly/1CJpTIc ) that Jystin Obert pleaded guilty as part of deal with prosecutors that calls for three to five years of supervised probation.

Investigators say Obert was a messenger for Garda, an armored car company, when he cut open one of the money bags he was in charge of delivering to the bank and stole a stack of $100 bills June 16. According to court documents, he told the bank teller the bag fell and ripped.

Obert, who has no criminal history, is accused of using the money to pay down some family debt and to buy gifts for his daughter. A sentencing date has not been set.
