Man accused of stealing over $200K from ATMs, stuffing the cash down his pants

A Kennesaw man who restocked ATMs is accused of stealing more than $200,000 and stuffing the cash into his pants to avoid detection.

Reginald Rashun Bryant, 35, transported cash and replaced tills in ATMs while working at GardaWorld in Smyrna, according to his arrest warrant. The company’s website describes GardaWorld as the world’s largest privately-owned security services company.

Bryant was arrested last month after allegedly taking nearly $220,000 from machines over an 11-week period, according to his warrant. Authorities said the theft occurred over 28 “transactions.” 

According to Bryant’s warrant, he admitted taking the cash from new tills while installing them. He also allegedly admitted to stuffing the bills into his pants to avoid detection while being searched at the end of his shifts. 

Bryant wrote a note expressing remorse for the theft and told his supervisor he could immediately return $50,000, authorities said. As of Aug. 21, $130,000 had been returned, according to officials.

Bryant was charged with one felony count of theft by taking and released from the Cobb County Adult Detention Center after posting a $55,220 bond, jail records show.
