A G4S driver has admitted stealing almost £1m in cash from one of the firm's vans.
Joel March, 36, fled with deposit boxes from the vehicle after parking it in Larkhall Rise in Clapham, south-west London on Tuesday.
The charge states he stole £970,000 from G4S.
March, of Rectory Grove, Clapham, admitted theft by employee at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court. He will be sentenced at a later date.
The Met said a quantity of cash has been recovered.
A spokeswoman for G4S, a major government contractor, said such incidents were "extremely rare".
