Officers J.L. Pace and M.L. Walker count some recovered money
In November 1999, an elderly gentleman reported that his home had been entered and a small home safe had been forced open and his life savings stolen. He reported approximately $2000-$2500 had been locked in the safe. Within a short period of time, Officer Jerry Pace spotted a suspect based on a description developed and, using consent to search the vehicle along with gut instinct, recovered the man’s money. A count (and two more recounts) revealed the total to be $103,610.
