A Woodside, Queens, man was arrested Friday, charged with using his position as store manager to steal more than $17,000 in daily bank deposits from the Office Max where he worked in Elmont, Nassau County police said.
Marc R. Galdass, 36, of 31st Avenue, attempted to cover the thefts with falsified deposit log books for proceeds he was supposed to hand over to Brink’s armored car company, police said, and he sometimes made unauthorized deposits directly to bank branches — withholding a portion of funds he was supposed to deposit.
The thefts were discovered by an Office Max loss prevention manager, police said. Police said the thefts from the Hempstead Turnpike store began in April.
Galdass surrendered to police and was charged with third-degree grand larceny, three counts of third-degree criminal possession of stolen property, two counts of first-degree falsifying of business records and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. He is now scheduled for arraignment Friday in First District Court in Hempstead, police said.
