An ex-Wendy’s employee is officially charged with breaking into a restaurant safe, after he was fired.
Court documents say a Wendy’s employee in Petoskey saw the Roseville man near the restaurant back in March.
The next morning, workers discovered more than $2,000 missing from the safe.
Investigators say the suspect was on a bus trying to get to California.
He was picked up by police in Grand Rapids.
Jacob Claes is facing charges for breaking and entering, safe breaking and larceny in Petoskey.
He was arrested on a warrant from Roseville for larceny in a building.
He’ll be back in court on Wednesday.
