Police said a former Huddle House employee stole nearly $11,000 while working at the Seneca restaurant.

Seneca police were notified in July that a former worker at the restaurant had possibly taken $10,800 that he was supposed to deposit at the bank earlier in the year.

According to the police report, 23-year-old Matthew Fuller, was fired for poor work performance prior to the restaurant's discovery of the missing money.

Investigators said when they asked Fuller if he took the money, he denied it and offered to take a polygraph test.

He took the test and failed, police said. They said he then admitted to taking some of the money, about $3,000, because he said times had been hard and he needed it to pay his bills.

Fuller told police he was sorry for not telling the truth and wanted to pay the money back, the report said.

Fuller turned himself into police and was charged with breach of trust, police said.
