ALLENTOWN, Pa. — According to an article on lehighvalleylive.com, Steven Figueroa, an employee at All American Car Wash, reportedly admitted to burglarizing it because he was angry with his boss.

Surveillance caught Figueroa breaking into the carwash on the night of Jan. 25th and stealing over $200 from a cash draw, the article stated.

However, Figueroa was arrested only 25 minutes later when an officer pulled him over for riding with improper lighting on his motorbike, the article continued.
