Charlotte bank employee Arlando Henderson, 29, was arrested for stealing $88,000 from his bank's vault after the FBI in San Diego discovered photos of cash posted on his social media accounts.

"Throughout July and August 2019, Henderson used a social media account to post several pictures of him holding large stacks of cash," according to a recently unsealed criminal indictment.

The indictment revealed that Henderson allegedly stole customer's cash deposits from the vault in separate allotments on 18 different occasions during the past year. He also used the money to make a $20,000 down payment on a new car:

"The indictment alleges that on at least 18 occasions in 2019, Henderson stole cash from deposits made by bank customers from the bank vault, and used the money to pay for personal expenses and to make a large cash down payment on [a 2019 Mercedes-Benz]."

Henderson has been charged with 19 counts of theft, embezzlement, and 12 counts of making false entries, which constitute up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine for each infraction.
