Authorities in Connecticut are looking for a newly-hired gas station employee who allegedly stole thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise from his job during his first shift.
The incident reportedly unfolded late last month at Go On Gas in Hamden. The Hamden Police Department said in a Facebook post that the unidentified employee stole lottery tickets, money, and 89 boxes of cigarettes — valued at a total of $17,183.
