NORWALK, Conn. – An employee at a Norwalk CVS pharmacy was accused of stealing more than $2,700 in cash from the store over a two-month period, according to police reports.
Store security at the CVS on Main Avenue reported the thefts to police in September. Eliot Velazquez, 20, a cashier at the store, was investigated because of an unusually high number of transactions at his station, police said.
In the thefts, Velazquez would scan a $5 coupon into the register and then pocket the amount in cash, according to the investigators’ report. From mid-July to mid-September, he used the scheme to take $2,760 in cash, according to the arrest report.
When confronted by officers, Velazquez admitted to the crime, police said. Norwalk Police filed for an arrest warrant for Velazquez, and he turned himself in on that warrant Wednesday afternoon, according to police reports.
Velazquez was charged with fourth-degree larceny and released on a promise to appear in court. He is due in court on Oct. 21.
