Target thefts appear to be an inside job

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Target Store security manager is arrested, and charged with stealing money from the store's registers.

Target officials report they spotted him taking money on the store's surveillance video.

43 year old Ngwafu Shu made his first appearance before a judge this morning at the Dougherty County jail, and was charged with 14 counts of misdemeanor theft by taking.

Target officials report they were investigating Shu for a month, and set up a sting to catch him with marked bills.

District Attorney Greg Edwards said these checks on store security officers is very common.

"Corporate enterprises have security teams that review their security teams in the local stores and offices. So it's not anything we haven't seen before," said the D.A.

Shu is being held in the Dougherty County jail on $21,000 bond.
