WHITE PLAINS NY June 27 2008

When you’re an employer, you’re always looking to hire good, honest employees. Someone that can be trusted to do a good days work and to not steal from you.
When a new hire by the name of Trust came to work at a local store they thought surely, he must be honest.
But, Donald Trust apparently didn’t live up to his name.
Police said that the 51-year-old Brooklyn man was arrested last night, after his boss at a White Plains eyeglass store decided to play detective and conducted his own sting operation to determine if Mr. Trust was in fact, not trustworthy and he proved to police that Trust stole money from the cash register.
The owner of Metro Vision, 245 Main St., told police he suspected that one of his employees was stealing. He said a female employee told him she thought she saw Trust take money from the register, but couldn’t prove it.
Not wanting to tip his hand to his employee, and with no evidence to give to the police for an arrest, the owner decided to try something that would help prove or disprove that trust had been broken.So, the owner put a sting in place and photocopied three $20 bills and put the real bills in the register about noon yesterday.
By 3:30 p.m., he said, the bills were gone. At that point, he summoned police and they went to the store and asked both employees to come to Public Safety headquarters “to get to the bottom of whatever was going on,” according to a police report.
Once there, cops asked Trust if he had any cash and he produced three $20 bills and $1 bills. Police said the $20s matched the owner’s photocopies.
At that point, police said, Trust admitted he took the bills from the register.
He has been charged with petty larceny, a misdemeanor.
Bail and court information was not available.
It just goes to show you, sometimes you just can’t judge a person by their name.
