Man Accuses Girlfriend Of Stealing
The Putnam County sheriff's department is looking into a report in which a man says his girlfriend stole more than two thousand dollars from him over a period of about two years. He told investigators that she had admitted to the stealing, but says "he thought she would change." He told authorities that he first noticed two jars of quarters missing from his home. Then, some old bills went missing -- including a one dollar bill, a two dollar bill, a five, a ten, a twenty and a one hundred dollar bill. Then, the victim says, his girlfriend took a roll of new dollar coins, worth $25, and also stole about $800 worth of silver dollars from him. Authorities say they are not sure why he gave her access to his debit card this week, allowing her to make several withdrawals -- totalling $1,680 -- before he finally called police. Investigation of the case is continuing.
