FORT WAYNE – In a span of less than two months, someone stole nearly $5,000 from the cash boxes next to stroller rental booths at Glenbrook Square.
Tuesday, Allen County prosecutors charged a former mall security guard with one count of felony theft in connection to the missing money.
Anthony J. Golaszewski, 27, of the 1700 block of St. Marys Avenue, told police he found a key while working a night shift at the mall, according to Allen Superior Court documents. He discovered the key went to the cash boxes for the stroller rentals. Golaszewski estimated that he took money from the boxes between Jan. 19 and Feb. 3, according to court documents.
Glenbrook officials told police $4,872 went missing, which Golaszewski said in court documents sounded like a realistic and accurate claim.
Golaszewski also said the security company he worked for paid the money back to Glenbrook to keep the two companies on good terms, according to court documents.
