CORPUS CHRISTI - A Corpus Christi woman is hoping security footage from a local drug store will point police in the direction of the person who stole more than $500 from her. After cashing her paycheck Friday, Danielle Blasingame went to the Walgreens on Leopard and Violet Saturday afternoon to pick up a few items with her mom and siblings. At the checkout counter she pulls out her bank envelope with the cashed paycheck and wallet.
"Well as the case has it I needed to get in to my wallet and when I put my wallet back in the purse the envelope kind of fell out on to the counter," says Blasingame.
Once Blasingame had left this Wlagreens and moved on to her next stop Saturday did she realize that envelope with over $500 was gone. So immediately she contacted the Walgreens asking if they had seen the envelope on the counter or on the floor. Since no one had seen the envelope or turned it in, Blasingame decided to go back and check herself. Police have not released the security footage from the incident, but according to Walgreens the video shows her leaving the envelope on the counter.
"Their exact words were they could not say for sure, but it did appear very much so like the person in line behind me took the envelope and put it in their belongings," says Blasingame.
But Blasingame can't remember anything about the person behind her in line.
"As soon as I made it outside of the door, after telling me that the person had take it I bawled my eyes out," says Blasingame.
Blasingame says she is fortunate to have the financial support of her family to help her make until the next payday.
Police are still investigating this case. If caught, the person would be charged with a Class B misdemeanor. Which is punishable with a fine up to $2,000 and up to 180 days in jail.
