Williamsburg, Va. - A former Busch Gardens employee was arrested last week, accused of giving away more than 100 parking passes while he worked at the amusement park.

According to James City County police, Darryl Malik Glenn, 20, was charged with felony embezzlement.

Police say Glenn worked in one of the booths at the front entrance of Busch Gardens where people pay to park.  Police say between Sept. 8 - 14 he gave away about 126 of the preferred parking tags, which allow closer parking.

They cost either $10 or $25 depending on if the person has a season pass, so he's accused of giving away anywhere from $1,200 - $3,100 worth of the parking passes.

Police say he didn't seem to know or have a connection to the people he gave free passes to.

A spokesperson from Busch Gardens says they cannot comment on personnel issues.

Glenn could not be reached for comment.
