A TTC employee has been charged with theft and two union representatives with covering up for him after an internal investigation found money missing from a collection till.

Toronto police were alerted last Friday after a routine audit of a TTC station collectorÂ’s float revealed it was short about $3,800. According to police investigators at 55 Division, TTC token rolls had been tampered with to cover up the theft.

Police said the accused called in union representatives, who allegedly destroyed evidence. TTC workers are members of the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 113.

The three men, all from Toronto, surrendered to police Tuesday and are to appear at College Park Court on Jan. 9, 2013.

Deodato Sousa, 54, has been charged with theft under $5,000.

John Wales, 63, and Clarke Smith, 53, have both been charged with compounding an indictable offence, theft under $5,000 and breach of trust.
