The suspect in the case of three missing checks being investigated by the Greeneville Police Department is the same person suspected in a theft and motor vehicle theft by the Greene County Sheriff's Department, according to police reports.
A 29-year-old woman reportedly took three checks from her ex-boyfriend's residence on Thursday and cashed them at the Consumer Credit Union, according to Greeneville Police.
On Friday, the same woman called a 58-year-old male friend who lives in the first block of Mt. Pleasant Lane, reportedly saying that her boyfriend had assaulted her and she "needed a place to go," according to a report by Deputy Toby Price.
The friend picked up the suspect and her 6-month-old son, giving them a place to stay for the night, the report noted.
However, the man awoke on Saturday to find his wallet and vehicle missing, the suspect gone, but the child still at his residence, according to the report.
The victim reported $760 in cash as stolen, along with his debit card, $50 in clothes and a 2000 maroon Buick Regal valued at $1,100, according to the report.
He "stated he was hoping she would come back for her child, along with his vehicle," the report noted.
The child was well-cared-for when deputies arrived and has been taken into custody by the Tennessee Department of Children's Services, according to the report.
