ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A Home Depot supervisor and another employee are behind bars Tuesday night for embezzlement.
According to police, Michael Keoghan and Christian Villa stole merchandise and more than $2,500 in cash from the store near Coors and Ouray.
Store personnel realized what was going on when they noticed cash missing from the registers.
They looked at surveillance video and saw that the two would load up a shopping cart with items, then only pay for a few of them.
Villa admitted to stealing items he would use for side jobs.
Keoghan told police he's addicted to pain pills and used the cash to support his habit.
