chin mauriceSPRINGFIELD (WGGB) – Springfield Police are looking for the man they say is responsible for the theft of $76-thousand dollars from a Garda security truck. 27-year-old Maurice Chin of Springfield is wanted on an outstanding warrant.

Police say Chin was working for Garda as a delivery driver.

“Earlier this month he was making a delivery to a business on Boylston and part of that delivery was a large amount of cash.” Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney says.

Police say 29 bags of cash were loaded into the Garda truck. When it reached it’s destination only 24 were present. The missing money totaled $76,000.

“An investigation ensued.” Sgt. Delaney says. “Our detective bureau was called in. Their security was called in.”

Police now say Chin is the primary suspect in the theft, but they’re unable to locate him. He has no criminal record and no longer works for Garda. Police say they’re hoping if apprehended, some of the $76-thousand can be returned to it’s rightful owner.

If you know where Maurice Chin is call the Springfield Police Department or text an anonymous tip to C-R-I-M-E-S.
