Fall River man charged with stealing from meters

FALL RIVER, Mass. -- A Fall River city employee whose job it is to collect coins from parking meters is charged with stealing some of the money as he made his rounds.
Police say 31-year-old Lawrence Fonseca was arrested at his home on Thursday and charged with larceny more than $250. Police also recovered a large amount of coins in his home. The exact amount was not immediately known.
Mayor Robert Correia says police received an anonymous call several weeks ago regarding Fonseca's alleged thefts. So two officers conducted surveillance on Fonseca and observed "suspicious activities."
Correia says he's "distressed " by the situation but is working on a new system of collecting money from the city's parking meters.
Fonseca has worked for the city since 1995.
