Police said the box, filled with Solomons dollars, Australian dollars and British pounds, was stolen from a house in the Henderson area on Friday night.

It's unclear why the residents chose to store such a large amount of money in their home but police said they were working at the Supreme Casino when the theft occurred.

The suspect in custody is understood to be a former employee of the complainants.
