A West Point man has been arrested after police charged him with embezzlement.
Melvin Darnell Randall, 23, was served arrest warrants on Nov. 28 after James City County police charged him with embezzlement nearly five months prior, according to court filings and James City County Police Department spokeswoman Stephanie Williams.
On April 14, a manager of the Barhamsville McDonald’s called the James City County Police Department to report an employee stole $230 from a cash register, a court filing stated.
The manager told police that two days earlier Randall’s cash register was short when the fast-food restaurant cashed out, according to a court filing.
After the manager watched security footage that showed Randall taking money from the cash register and putting it in a jacket pocket, she confronted him, the court filing said.
Randall told his manager he would bring the money back and she told him to bring the money to her by April 14 at 10:30 a.m., according to the court filing. Four minutes after 10:30 a.m., she called the police.
In May, James City police charged Randall with embezzlement and on Nov. 28 he was served an arrest warrant on the charge, according to court filings and Williams.
Randall previously had been charged with embezzlement, petit larceny and grand larceny in Williamsburg-James City County General District Court, according to online court records.
Randall’s next appearance in Williamsburg-James City County General District Court is scheduled for Jan. 10 at 10 a.m., according to online court records.
