Police are looking for a man they said broke into his girlfriend’s grandfather’s safe and stole $36,000.
According to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department, 18-year old Tyler David Bolton is wanted on theft and vandalism charges.
The police report states Bolton’s girlfriend was house-sitting for her grandfather while he was at the hospital with his wife.
Police said when she fell asleep, Bolton broke into the grandfather’s locked bedroom and safe.
