A former security worker at Brink's Company has been charged with stealing almost $200,000 worth of quarters, justice officials said Monday
Stephen Dennis, 49, of Harpersville, Alabama, is accused of taking the coins while working as a money processing manager, the Department of Justice said in a news release.
The 49-year-old has agreed to plead guilty to the charge and repay Brink's, which has already reimbursed the coins' owner, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, it said.
"What Mr. Dennis may have thought was a nickel and dime theft was, in the end, the equivalent of a major bank heist," FBI Special Agent Roger C. Stanton said in the release.
