I heard from the police officer last week - he said he got the video tape from the store and took a taped statement from the cashier that was working at the station next to the girl who stole my money. I was very happy to hear that. I went home on friday to find a letter from the courts saying that i must appear tomorrow night for court regarding this matter. WOW--- that was fast... I am amazed how quickly this came up. Now I'm nervous...lol. I have a feeling this girl may not show up- in which case they will put a warrant out for her arrest. If she does- who knows how long before I will get the money.....I will keep you all posted- hopefully I won't be too busy to get a quick post in on Wednesday to fill you in- this is the last week of school so its crazy around here. Wish me luck!!!

I did not htink this would happen so quickly- it's great, however, I hate public speaking- i get so flustered and I will have to get up there and tell my story. I hope my husband goes with me!!

Hi Shambuca, good luck for going to court I suppose their quickness goes to show that they can be efficient sometimes. Hope all goes well and that she actually turns up so you can get your money back!

Oh Good luck! I so hope she shows up- and feels bad and just has the money with her- I mean if they already have evidence and everything- just pay it back- I'm sure she will still get into trouble for stealing it in the first place- You are being very positive on this whole situation- I hope the outcome is positive as well- and quick! Good luck and keep us posted!

Shambuca, I have been wondering what all had happened with your money being stolen. Please fill us in after you go to court as to what happened. I got very nervous when I had to go to court (one time in my life) I was just nervous and I had never been in a courtroom, etc. But I was a witness to something and I had to go to court. I wish you lots of luck and I hope you get your money recovered and she has to do extra or serve her time in jail for stealing. I hate theives. Keep us posted
