UPDATE: Man arrested in connection with missing $41,000

Feb. 21, 2013 @ 01:03 PM

Davidson County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Winston-Salem man in connection with missing money from a Brinks armored truck.
Less than 12 hours after the sheriff’s department issued a press release seeking information, authorities got a tip that Thomas Eugene Strange was possibly at 1852 Friedberg Church Road in Winston-Salem.
Strange, 37, was found at the residence and was arrested without incident. He also was cited for a small amount of marijuana that was in his possession, according to the police report.
He received a $100,000 secured bond on the felony larceny charge and a court date of April 1.
The charge stems from a Brinks truck crash in November that spilled bags of cash all over U.S. 52 in Davidson County. Police at the scene assisted in recovering much of the cash, but Brinks the next day filed a report with the sheriff’s office saying $41,000 was missing from the accident.
Grice requested assistance from the State Bureau of Investigation to help the detective division in the investigation because of the number of local fire, rescue, EMS and deputies involved in the rescue of the guards and the recovery of the truck’s contents.
Even though Strange is in custody, Grice said the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (336) 242-2105.
