Woman leaves money at restaurant, returns to find its gone

Cash from a woman’s paycheck was allegedly stolen from the counter of the McDonald’s on Vernon Road on Tuesday. The woman said she cashed her weekly paycheck at her bank, and left it sitting on the front counter of the register area of the restaurant. She said she took $10 out of the $432.89 she had in money stored in the paper bank envelope and paid for her meal.

The woman said she realized the envelope was missing after she left the restaurant, and returned after being unable to find it anywhere at her home.

The manager at McDonald’s said she reviewed the security camera footage, which showed another woman pick up the envelope. The woman then left the building and pulled up in the drive thru to the second window. An employee allegedly leaned out the window, secured a $100 bill in her left hand and placed it in her front left pocket of her pants.

Police spoke with the employee and told her if she brought the money back that she would not be charged with a crime. The employee did bring the $100 back.

Police then met with the woman who allegedly took the money off the counter. She gave police $210 of the money and promised police she would bring the remaining $112 to the police department by July 26 at 11 p.m.
