    Yellow warning tape is seen surrounding a truck on the Levi's Stadium construction site in Santa Clara, Calif., Monday, Oct. 14, 2013.

    A subcontractor at the Levis Stadium project was arrested Monday on charges of with grand theft and two counts of burglary.

    Santa Clara police Lt. Kurt Clarke said Vincent Latona, 37, stole from his employer, Cupertino Electric. The company was hired to work on the new 49ers stadium, and Latona was a supervisor at the site.

    Investigators don't think he stole from the stadium construction site, but they are still looking into the case. 

    "We are aware that an employee of Cupertino Electric, a subcontractor on the stadium project, has been arrested for theft from his employer," wrote Turner/Devcon, the project's general contractor, in a statement sent to the Mercury News. "This employee has performed work on Levi's Stadium and, while it does not appear there have been any fraudulent charges to the stadium project, we will await the results of the investigation before commenting further."

    Devcon/Turner said the contractor's invoices will be reviewed by auditors to see if there were any inappropriate charges. If so, they will be recovered from the contractor.

    "Neither the Stadium Authority nor the 49ers will incur any cost in this regard," Devcon/Turner stated.
