NEW ORLEANS, La. (KLFY) - An ATM technician teamed up with his brother-in-law to stage a phony robbery and steal about $100,000 in cash according to police.
Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Jason Rivarde tells NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune that 27-year-old Munther Quraan and his brother-in-law, 27-year-old Jihad Nassar, were arrested and booked Thursday with theft valued over $25,000.
Quraan was also booked with several offenses including obstruction of justice.
He said a man clad in a mask and hat walked up to him while he was working and pointed what he thought was a weapon hidden under the man's clothing.
Money destined for the ATM was demanded, and other things were taken. But, authorities say it was a "set-up," though it's unclear how that was determined.
