Former Fried Frank employee steals $376,000 worth of copy machine toner

Adrian Rodriguez ordered excessive toner and then sold it at a discount

We’ve heard of strange misconduct at law firms, but Adrian Rodriguez’s misdeeds are just plain bizarre.

Rodriguez, 39, worked in the copying department at Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson for a decade. Between October 2010 and December 2012, he ordered an excessive amount of copy machine toner from the law firm’s suppliers. Rodriguez then resold the toner—which retails between $80 and $259—at a discount, collecting a mere $10 per box of black ink toner and $15 per box of color ink toner.
