Wanted to take money for a taxi, but in the end I lost half a million on bets

An employee of a Yaroslavl-based firm stayed late at work and had no money for a taxi. That's when a brilliant idea struck him, one he immediately put into action.

He decided to take cash from the safe in the company's accounting department. Using the key to the accounting office that he found in the pocket of the chief's jacket, he gained access and discovered the safe's key. Inside lay 458 thousand rubles. His eyes lit up, and the man decided to take it all.

The plan was quite simple from there. He intended to rush to the ATM, deposit the cash, and indulge in some gambling. However, his gamble didn't pay off, and the next morning, the player eventually decided to confess.

The court sentenced him to three years' imprisonment in a medium-security correctional facility for his actions.
