(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – An alleged thief may have managed to avoid being witnessed by a person when stealing cash from a register, but the store’s security camera saw it all.

A male appearing to be in his teens or 20s visited McCabe’s Greenhouse & Floral on U.S. 50 in Lawrenceburg just before 1:00 p.m. Thursday. Surveillance footage showed him go behind the counter to an unmanned cash register.

Manager Adam Legge said the suspect took about $100 in cash out of the register. The theft wasn’t discovered until sometime after the suspect had left the store. Legge said Lawrenceburg Police were then called to investigate.

The thief may have been driving a silver passenger car.

Anybody who may be able to identify the suspect is asked to call the Lawrenceburg Police Department at (812) 537-2284.
