Home Depot Employee Admits to Stealing $2000

The following article is based on a Boston Police report and where charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.


An employee of Home Depot in West Roxbury was arrested after allegedly admitting he had stolen approximately $2000 in cash.

On April 30, around 12:11 p.m., Giovanni Coley, of 42 Mildred Ave. #1, Mattapan, was arrested and charged with larceny in a building of more than $250, according to a Boston Police report.

Boston Police were called to the Home Depot to meet with the District Asset Protection Manager, who told officers the employee, Coley, had admitted to stealing about $2000 in cash. The manager said that since February the store auditing sheets had consistently been showing cash shortages in each of their four self-checkout registers. The suspect, Coley, was the head cashier, and was responsible for replenishing the cash supply to those self-checkout registers, and that after being confronted that morning, he admitted to "taking 60 to 80 dollars at a time for a 2-month period" according to a statement he signed.

The audit sheets showed a shortage of $4200 compared to the $2000 figure the suspect admitted to, according to a Boston Police report.
