A Conway man was charged with stealing more than $89,000 while he was driving for an armored cash transport service, according to state authorities.
Jerome Kittles, 60, of Conway was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 3:55 p.m. Monday with breach of trust with fraudulent intent with a value of $10,000 or more and unlawful carrying of a pistol, according to jail records. Kittles was released at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday on $17,500 bail.
In a release from the State Law Enforcement Division issued Thursday, officials said SLED agents investigated Kittles at the request of the Conway Police Department.
If convicted, Kittles faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine to be determined by a judge, according to SLED officials.
An affidavit showed that authorities charged Kittles after learning that $89,750 cash was missing from deposits collected by Kittles between Aug. 18 and Sept. 2 while he was a route driver for Loomis Company in Conway.
While being questioned by Loomis officials, the affidavit showed that Kittles admitted to taking the cash from collected deposit bags.
