(Naugatuck, CT) -- A manager of a Naugatuck, Connecticut KFC has been arrested and accused of stealing around 12-thousand-dollars in cash from the restaurant.

Iris Estella surrendered to police last week and is charged with second degree larceny.

Police began investigating in December, when the KFC reported the missing cash.

Estella reportedly was the person responsible for transporting cash from the restaurant to the bank at the time the money went missing.
