SALISBURY — A female employee at the Lucky Duck Arcade on Mooresville Avenue apparently made the most of being alone with cash for a minute Sunday night.

Salisbury Police say the woman, who has not yet been identified, grabbed cash out of drawers and buckets and stuffed it into a bag during one minute, between 9:54 and 9:55 p.m., before running out.

The estimated total loss is $20,000, but investigators say they are still determining how much money was actually taken.
