Court documents reveal that police found nearly $200,000 in cash at the home of a former Lubbock police officer suspected of stealing around $1/2 million dollars from a cash management business in Florida.
Jamie LaCraig Farrie Jr was arrested on a fugitive warrant on June 21 and is being held at the Lubbock County Detention Center.
Farrie faces felony charges including burglary of an unoccupied structure, grand theft over $500,000, and use of a motor vehicle during the commission of a felony crime.
A Melbourne, Florida police detective contacted Lubbock police investigators and informed them that Farrie was a suspect in a March burglary of Empyreal Logistics, a money courier and security service provider.
A large amount of U.S. Currency was stolen during the burglary according to the documents.
The Florida detective told Lubbock police investigators that Farrie, who worked as a Lubbock police officer from 2016-2021, was a suspect in the March burglary of a money courier company where Farrie worked.
The company's internal investigation included a lie detector test that indicated Farrie was deceptive.
The ensuing police investigation revealed that Farrie rented a vehicle around the time of the burglary that resembled the one seen in security camera video at the scene of the crime. GPS data from the rental vehicle placed it at the scene at the time.
Additionally, the vehicle was damaged during the burglary and investigators found that Farrie's rental had damage consistent with the damage to the vehicle used in the burglary.
Lubbock police investigators learned that Farrie had an active LP&L account at a home in the 3600 block of E. Third Street. Officers watching the house for a week saw Farrie in the driveway and suspected that Farrie kept money from the burglary in the home.
On June 21, police searched the home and found more than $187,400 in cash, a safe, and financial documents along with an Empyreal Logistics credit card.
