Money stolen from handicapped

Sandusky Register Staff • Aug 27, 2010 at 12:12 PM

Money saved by three handicapped men was stolen during a burglary at the Flat Rock Community Services residence.

The three men, who receive 24-hour care at the residence, together were saving $82, all of which was reported missing, according to a Huron Police report.

The money was divided into three envelopes, with each man’s name on the front of it, and kept in a locked safe that was found unlocked.

The home’s grocery money, which was kept in the same locked box, wasn’t taken during the theft.

The burglary occurred when the staff and residence were away from the Berlin Road residence to attend a softball game.

When a staff member returned to the residence, he found the door unlocked, which another staff member remembered locking before she left.

Nothing else was disturbed in the residence, the report also stated.
