INDIANAPOLIS - A cash handler at Brinks Inc. was arrested after police accused her of taking $25,000 from the building's cash room.
A manager called police after running an audit of employee Taneisha Randle's workstation. According to the police report, Randle asked to go home sick Monday night. After running the audit, managers said that Randle's workstation came up $25,000 short.
When managers called Randle, 23, in to work Tuesday morning, she denied having any Brinks' money.
Detectives who spoke with managers said they have surveillance video of Randle sitting in the cash room counting money. According to police, Randle was seen in the video taking money from the table and putting it onto her lap and in between her legs.

"I have no money that belongs to Brinks," she said in the police report.
Randle was arrested and taken into custody on theft charges.
