A Fayette County man who police said cleaned out his employer’s cash register after he quit his job — but left an IOU note for his boss — is charged with theft.
Matthew V. Cumberland, 26, of 50 W. Main St., Apt. 804, Uniontown, is charged by Uniontown Officer Thomas Kolencik with theft by unlawful taking.
In a report, Kolencik said Cumberland was working at Walgreen’s on West Main Street on Saturday evening when he decided to quit before the end of his shift. As he was leaving the store, he helped himself to $697 from the cash register — but left an IOU note, Kolencik said in his report.
“I quit this place,” Cumberland wrote on a pink Post-It note that a manager discovered on the cash register.
“This place is a joke anymore,” Kolencik said the note read. “‘Leave it to Weaver’ 2 days a week ... . P.S. IOU.”
Kolencik said the store’s video-surveillance cameras captured Cumberland removing the money from the register.
Charges were filed with Uniontown District Judge Michael Metros. Cumberland has not yet been arraigned.
