The suspect had disappeared after the incident.
Police Spokesperson Charity Chanda says Namangolwa Mubita was guarding the premises the day the Safe was stolen and went into hiding until this morning when he was apprehended at Sikela village in Sikongo, Western Province.
Ms Chanda says K7,000 has since been recovered from Mubita and investigations in the matter are continuing.
Police last week questioned some members of staff in the accounts department in connection with the theft of the Safe.
