A new cashier at the Target on Showers Drive has been accused of pocketing nearly $2,000 in cash over the course of his first two solo shifts at the register, police said.
Alex Guevara, an 18-year-old Mountain View resident, allegedly stole $1974.75 over the course of two days, loss prevention officials at Target told police.
After officials at the store discovered that cash was missing from Guevara's register after the first solo shift on Sept. 15, Target security watched him on camera as he worked his second day, Sept. 21, Liz Wylie, a spokeswoman for the Mountain View Police Department said.
The store's loss prevention team confronted and detained Guevara, allegedly finding money in his sock. Police arrested Guevara on suspicion of embezzlement and booked him into jail.
