Most bosses are kind enough to ensure that the first day on the job for new employees is straightforward and easy. After all, it’s not realistic to expect someone who’s never worked for your company to be Employee of the Year right out of the gate.
That said, most bosses also have a certain level of expectation about their new employees — for example, that they won’t steal more money than most of the company’s employees make in a month.
A 26-year-old man in Morriston, New Jersey must have decided pretty quickly that he was fed up working in fast food, because it took him only minutes to commit grand theft against his new employer recently.
Police allege that Tyrone D. Harris stole $2,136 from Dunkin Donuts on his very first shift with the coffee chain. Ridiculously, security footage revealed that Harris was only at work for seven minutes before he fled with the cash. That’s the equivalent of getting paid $17,142 per hour — just a little bit better than minimum wage.
Of course, minimum wage workers actually get to keep their money. And they don’t end up in jail.
Harris reportedly checked in for his first shift at Dunkin Donuts and went to the owner’s office to get a nametag. While he was back there, he noticed a few bundles of cash in a desk drawer. He nabbed the cash while the owner was out of the office and then started his orientation training program.
Minutes later, he informed the owner that he would go home and do his training online. Soon after, the owner noticed that the money was missing.
Police have been unable to locate Harris following the alleged theft.
