MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - A man tasked with depositing more than $10,000 in cash for two Manhattan stores apparently never made it to the bank.

The Riley Co. Police Dept. says officers filed reports of theft made by the Best Buy in the 300 block of Tuttle Creek Blvd., and Ross Dress for Less in the 400 block of East Poyntz Tuesday morning.

RCPD reports that the businesses reported the same man stole approximately $4,903 in deposits from the Best Buy and $5,117 from Ross.

Officials say the cash and deposits were meant to be made by a financial transport company.

Capt. Josh Kyle said the reported theft from Best Buy happened in August 2021, however it was unclear when the theft happened at Ross.

The man’s identity has not been released.

The Manhattan Ross and Best Buy stores are located about 1/2 mile from one another.
