EDMONTON, Alberta, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- An Edmonton, Alberta, company that services ATM cash dispensers was robbed of $30,000 at the same time an employee went missing, police said.

Edmonton Police issued a statement Tuesday saying an arrest warrant had been issued for 28-year-old Gurnam Singh Gharlay, who failed to show up for work on Feb. 8, the Edmonton Sun reported Wednesday.

That day, coworkers arrived to find the door to the cash office open, the alarm turned off and $30,000 missing from the safe, the report said.

Police said Gharlay had a history of drug use and casino gambling.

His car was found Feb. 11 at a motel parking lot and there was no sign of foul play, police said.

Edmonton Police spokesman Dean Parthenis appealed to the public for information about the theft, saying "a suspect may brag about it and someone out there may have valuable information," the Sun reported.
