SULLIVAN, MO (KTVI) – The Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged a 55-year-old St. Louis woman for allegedly stealing cash and credit cards from a local eye doctor’s office.
According to Lt. Patrick Johnson, a spokesman for the Sullivan Police Department, the theft occurred around 11:50 a.m. on March 26 at the Sullivan Eye Care on East Springfield Road.
Authorities were told a woman entered the business and claimed to be an attorney from St. Louis, Johnson said. She later left the business and got into a gold minivan and drove away. The eye doctor then discovered his cash and credit cards were missing from his wallet.
Prior to police arriving at the eye care business, a Franklin County sheriff’s deputy noticed the minivan and pulled the vehicle over on Interstate 44 near mile marker 251. The deputy discovered the stolen items in the minivan and arrested the woman and a male driver.
The suspect, identified as Laymonda Fuller, was charged with second-degree burglary and felony stealing. She remains jailed on $50,000 cash-only bond.
