Cash swipe

Police arrested a furniture store delivery man accused of stealing more than $3,000 in cash from the Degraw Street store where he works on Dec. 17.

The manager of the store between Third and Fourth avenues told cops that the suspect was supposed to make his deliveries and collect the payments from the customers at around 4:30 pm.

The suspect told the manager that he got into a fight with his wife and that the cash suddenly went missing. But the suspect told police he went to a nearby fast-food restaurant — and that he did not get into a fight with his wife.

The suspect said that when he returned home from the eatery the money was missing, but he did not file a police report or inform his boss of the mishap, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
