Published:
CHICORA, Pa. -- A Pennsylvania woman has been charged with stealing money from cards brought to a wedding reception she was attending -- and trying to hide the loot in her bra.
State police say Jennifer Ann Martz, 40, of Chicora, attended Saturday's wedding with her boyfriend, who was an invited guest.
The Butler Eagle reports guests found 11 cards missing from a gift table and noticed Martz heading to the ladies room. Police say Martz ripped up the cards and tried to flush them down a toilet, while stuffing $475 in cash and $80 in checks into her bra. That's where other female guests told police they found the loot.
Martz doesn't have a listed phone, and online court records don't list an attorney for her.
The groom's brother, Jeremy Scherer, says Martz "ruined the whole time for everybody."
