    Hey — HE got $1200 – Come rob us . We aren’t smart with securing our money – forget Turkey Hill . Whose the dummy to even report this way – say stole cash and smokes ! Or is this inside job ?

      They cash alot of checks there I’m actually surprised they didn’t get away with more. They need to at least access 1,000 in cash at a time because that’s how much a truck driver can cash at a time. But yes pretty dumb to report it. It’s common knowledge for truckers but not the general public

    If the management were smart, $1,200 would have been reported as an “undetermined” amount of cash like the bank robberies are. If they were really smart, there’s no way they would have had that amount of cash where an employee at 1a.m could touch it.
