Bank Theft Suspect Applies for Job with Police, Gets Arrested During Interview

An Arizona man accused of stealing money from a bank he worked at was arrested Thursday after applying for a job as a police dispatcher.

USA Today reports that the Cottonwood Police Department arrested Alberto Saavedra Lopez, 32, and charged him with felony theft January 4 after he arrived at the station for his “interview.”

Police say Lopez allegedly stole $5,000 from the Bank of America where he had been employed between July and September 2016, KMOV reports.

Bank of America reported the alleged theft in October 2016. Shortly after the alleged theft took place, police say Lopez moved to Phoenix and avoided investigators’ phone calls and appointments.
I guess that area of Arizona isn't a great place to move either
