Firefighter caught on tape stealing from capt.

IRVINE, Calif. – A veteran firefighter-paramedic with Orange County Fire Authority was caught on video stealing cash from his fire captain's wallet at an Irvine fire station, police investigators allege in an arrest warrant affidavit.

Irvine Police detectives conducted surveillance in the case after the captain reported an "ongoing issue" of someone taking small denominations from his wallet over a period of one to one-and-a-half years. The incidents occurred when his wallet was in the closet of his non-shared bedroom at the station while he exercised, the captain said.

The suspect is Gregory Mark Konishi, 49, a Rancho Santa Margarita resident who has worked at Orange County Fire Authority for 25 years.
