May 07, 2004

City police are investigating the disappearance of more than $12,000 in cash and checks from a safe at the Eastside District Court -- the proceeds from fines and court cost payments.

The apparent theft was discovered about 4 p.m. yesterday when two employees of the court in the 1400 block of E. North Ave., using a confidential combination, and a security officer of Dunbar Armored Inc., who had a key, opened a safe in the cashier's officer and discovered the funds were missing, said Officer Nicole Monroe, a city police spokeswoman.

"We believe the theft was committed by a court employee," Monroe said.
