Bradley Francis Gorand was arraigned at the Washtenaw County Jail Thursday on charges of breaking and entering with intent to commit a crime and larceny from a building. He’s been released after posting 10 percent of $1,500, according to jail records.

Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the larceny took place at about 9:30 p.m. on March 14 at the restaurant, 629 East University Ave. Gorand was hanging around the back of the building for about 15 minutes and, when an employee opened the back door to take out some trash, he bolted in, Bush said.

Gorand took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and left through the front door, Bush said. He fled the area south on East University Avenue, she said.

Gorand was recognized when the restaurant’s general manager reviewed security camera footage of the incident, Bush said. Detectives Michael Dortch and Chris Fitzpatrick interviewed Gorand and said he was unable to give an explanation for the incident. Gorand did not deny being a part of the theft either, Bush said.

Dortch and Fitzpatrick arrested Gorand after the interview, Bush said.

Gorand is scheduled to be back in court for a preliminary hearing at 8:30 a.m. on March 29, according to Bush.

What could possibly make someone steal from their old job? From people that they know personally? What could drive someone to do such a thing?
