LENOIR CITY A Maryville man was arrested after he was allegedly caught on a security camera burglarizing a safe and stealing nearly $2,000 from his former employer.
Jarrod Wayne Randolph, 31, Thornhill Drive, was charged with burglary and theft over $500 by Lenoir City police Monday.
According to the warrants, just before 6 a.m. Sunday, Lenoir City Police were called to the Bojangles restaurant on Highway 321 to investigate a burglary and theft. When LCPD Officer Shane Tilley arrived, he said he spoke to the opening manager and an employee who said they arrived at work that morning and found the safe had been broken into and money was missing. 
Officer Tilley said he watched the recording from the security cameras that showed a man enter the building just after 11 p.m. Saturday, after the restaurant was closed. The man was identified as Randolph, a former employee.
The recording showed the man walking to the office, opening the safe and taking the money, which totaled $1,817.08. Randolph was in the building for less than two minutes.
Officer Tilley served the warrants on Randolph Monday at the Loudon County Jail, where he was already incarcerated on previous, unrelated charges.
