JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police say a men’s clothing store manager made his own alterations to the bank deposits by claiming the money he stole was used for outside tailoring.

Jared Tristan Berry, 30, of Jonesboro, is charged with felony theft greater than $5,000 but less than $25,000 from a building.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the regional sales director of Jos. A. Bank, 3000 E. Highland, reported on March 10 that Berry, who was then the store’s manager, had been taking deposits from the store.

She said Berry had not taken deposits to the bank.

She also said that Berry claimed money taken out of the deposits was used for “outside tailoring,” according to the court document.

However, the tailor reported only two alterations for the store during the time frame, contradicting what had been noted on the deposits.

The sales director said the thefts, which she believed started in September 2015, exceeded $5,000.

After obtaining an arrest warrant from a Craighead County District Court judge, police arrested Berry Tuesday morning and took him to the Craighead County Detention Center to await a probable cause hearing.
