An FBI affidavit says Espinosa and another employee were doing a pickup at a mall the day of the theft. The other employee went inside, and when he came out, the truck was gone, the affidavit states. It adds the truck was moved to another location at the mall and Espinosa had disappeared.

The FBI affidavit says "hundreds of thousands of dollars" were missing from the truck.

It wasn't immediately known if Espinosa had a lawyer who could comment.
