Oregon woman reports $17,000 stolen from drawer

Jun 29, 2013, 9:52 PM

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon woman residing in an assisted-living facility says she withdrew $17,000 in cash from the bank to buy a mobile home and pay some bills.

Four days later, she noticed it missing from a locked drawer.

The Eugene Register-Guard reports (

On June 22, she found the drawer damaged and the money gone.

Police can’t tell whether the damage to the drawer happened before or after the reported theft.

McComb and her husband, Bill McComb, moved to the Eugene, Ore., facility earlier this month. Eugene is about 110 miles southwest of Portland.

Police are looking at a list of more than 100 visitors to the facility and dusted the drawer for fingerprints.
