A former employee of the Silverbow Inn has been charged with stealing about $1,200 from a lockbox at the historic hotel and bakery in downtown Juneau.
According to a Juneau Police press release, 37-year-old Joshua River Riley was arrested Wednesday and charged with 2nd Degree Theft, a Class C felony.
The missing cash was reported last Saturday, November 10th. Police believe it was taken sometime in the evening of November 9th. According to police, Riley was seen on surveillance video near the safe, even though he had no reason to be there.
The case is still under investigation.
Riley is being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center on no bail.
