Putnam Man Accused Of Stealing From Cousin

An April 11th court date has been set for a Monterey man, charged with stealing medication from a relative. Authorities say 26-year-old Brigham Whitehead is accused of breaking into the Andy Lane home of his cousin and stealing cash and prescription pills. According to reports, Cookeville police became involved after Whitehead and the victim got into an altercation in a local parking lot. Whitehead allegedly asked his cousin to sell him some pills and, when refused, was later seen running from the scene with a black box that may have contained the pills and more than $700 in cash.  You may recall that Whitehead was also one of four people charged in July of last year with breaking into the Lakeside Deli in Monterey.
