Man Says He Stole $1,450 From Arby’s Because the Money Was “Calling out” to Him

A 30-year-old guy named Christopher Merrick went into a closed Arby's in Tarpon Springs, Florida last week, where a female employee was counting cash for the register. And Christopher grabbed the cash and ran.
He headed straight to a McDonald's across the street and hid in the women's bathroom... until the cops showed up and found him and the cash. It turned out he'd stolen $1,450 from the Arby's.

He's been charged with felony grand theft.
