DECATUR — Police said a Decatur man, 80, reported that the 36-year-old woman he is dating stole his checkbook and wrote $1,000 worth of checks without his permission.
Detective Sgt. Steve Carroll said the money vanished with six checks written over several days and all spent at the same retail store.
The theft was reported Tuesday. Carroll said Wednesday the case was being assigned to detectives to “track the woman down and see what her side of the story is.”
