Manager at Gucci is charged with theft of bank bag

A Gucci manager was charged with felony theft Thursday after he allegedly admitted taking $1,500 in store deposits.

Jeremy Foy Kent, 27, of Aspen was questioned by police on Monday when a Gucci deposit bag meant for US Bank went missing. At first, Kent claimed that he lost the bag around noon that day as he ran a few errands around town.

He allegedly told police that he went by Ace Hardware to pick up a few items he had ordered for Gucci. Kent said he then stopped by his car in the Aspen parking garage to drop off a few items and forgot to take the deposit bag from the hood of his car as he left.

Kent said he walked across town to US Bank only to find that he had forgotten the bag in the parking garage. He claimed that when he returned to his car, the bag was gone – along with $1,571.50 in Gucci deposits.

Aspen police Sgt. Bill Linn called Kent at home on Wednesday and requested a second interview. He agreed and went to the police department yesterday – and allegedly told a different story.

Kent allegedly told Linn that he did not visit the store. Instead, he allegedly said he locked himself in a public bathroom and pocketed the money from the deposit bag.

Kent said he needed the money for day-to-day expenses, but hadn’t spent any since taking it.

He was charged with felony theft and booked into Pitkin County Jail, where he was held on a $2,500 bond.
