Please read the cron man page. *THOROUGHLY*

A job running from cron DOES NOT HAVE YOUR ENVIRONMENT.

Does your script have
#!/bin/bash
at the top? If not, it will be run as Bourne shell, which has a lot of
*nothing* of the features you expect to program with.

Check the environment that you require.
