Blotter: Woman reports money missing after over a month

A woman told police Saturday that she had waited for more than a month to report that $27,100 was missing from her residence in the 4500 block of Interstate 35, according to a police report.

The report didn’t state why the woman waited so long to report the crime, or why she had that much cash in her home.

The woman told police the theft took place between March 26 and 28 and that she believes a person who works at her apartment complex took the money, according to the report.

She told police that she allows that person to assist her with grocery shopping and other errands. The victim said she did not believe that anyone else had been in her residence.

No arrest had been made at the time the report was filed.
