A Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Hotel security guard, Edward Cespedes, was arrested last week and is facing charges of grand-theft after Orange Country Deputies caught him on surveillance cameras stealing $500 from a guest room in the hotel.
According to the report there has been 23 complaints of money missing since early 2015. The resort manager believed Cespedes was involved but couldn’t prove it. However Cespedes always seemed to be on shift when money went missing.
Last Wednesday Officers set up a sting operation with a room just like the previous thefts with $500.00 in a wallet and a door left open a crack. They watched through surveillance cameras and saw Cespedes enter the room and remove the money from the wallet. He was later arrested with the $500.00 on him.
Cespedes admitted he should not be entering guest room but also said this is the first time he ever took any money. When the officers tried to give him a lie detector test he asked for a lawyer.
He has since been released on bail.
This is the 2nd news story in the past week involving theft while on vacation at Walt Disney World. Please remember to always lock your doors and put money and valuables away or out of site.
