Edward James Mortley, 44, subject of an embezzlement warrant, was returned to Des Moines Friday from Bloomington, Minn.
Mortley, whose last address was reported as 1720 Gillette st., is charged with the theft of $381 from the Breese Oil co. service station at 4003 E Fourteenth st., the night of Jan. 30.
Mortley had been employed at the station for a short time and was supposed to be working the night the money was missing from the station's cash register.
