School custodian accused of cracking safe, taking money
WEST VALLEY CITY — A custodian at Granger High School has been arrested for allegedly stealing money out of the school safe.
Robert Walker, 18, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail Tuesday for investigation of five counts of burglary and four counts of theft.
Police were initially called to investigate several incidents of money being taken from the school safe as well as a teacher's desk. Video cameras were set up around the area where the safe is located, in the main office behind a locked door, and eventually captured Walker spinning the dial on the safe, according to a Salt Lake County Jail report.
After confronting Walker, investigators say he told them he had gone into the safe room on at least five different occasions since Feb. 18 and had discovered the combination, the report states. He is suspected of taking about $600 from the safe and another $60 from a teacher's desk.
Walker had been a sweeper at Granger for about two months. Prior to that he worked as a custodian at Granite Peaks High School.
