Former Employee Suspected In Business Theft

The Putnam County sheriff's office is investigating the theft of more than two thousand dollars in cash from a business on Burgess Falls Road over the weekend. The owner told authorities that someone broke out the south side window of a show room and pulled out all of the drawers in an office, making off with $2,300. The victim says nothing else appeared to be disturbed at the business, which leads him to believe that the person who broke in and took the money could be an ex-employee, who was fired a few days ago. Detective Doug Burgess is investigating.
