LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a former UPS employee who stole more than $10,000 of foreign currency from his employer.

According to an arrest report, the incidents took place between Jan. 1 and March 26. Police say that while 30-year-old Reddrick D. Fines was still employed at UPS, he took the currency from packages that were being shipped to a Louisville-based company that exchanges foreign currencies.

Fines would allegedly give the foreign currency to others, who would exchange it for U.S. money.

Police say they interviewed witnesses who said they received the foreign currencies from Fines, exchanged it for U.S. currency and then returned it to Fines.

Fines was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with theft by unlawful taking.
