London, June 24 (ANI): The age-old adageonce bitten twice shy does not hold true for a Barclays employee, who was once sacked under suspicion for stealing cash, and still pinched 42,000 pounds of the bank just because his bosses forgot to take his keys back.

Lavern Rhodes was fired from Barclays as the bank bossed suspected him over a missing 10,000 pounds.

However, he swiped a bigger hand when he came back after four weeks to find the alarm codes unchanged and thus pilfered the safe.

Next day, the Police got hold of the cash in the kitchen of this Bedford resident, reports The Sun.

Rhodes later admitted his theft the local magistrates and may be sentenced next month. (ANI)
