(AP) — A man who volunteered at a fundraiser for a Nebraska homicide victim has been accused of stealing gifts from the event.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s office says 50-year-old Jeffrey A. Johnson was booked Monday on suspicion of felony theft in connection with a Sept. 27 fundraiser for the family of Andrea Kruger. She is one of four victims tied to the Omaha killings this summer.
Authorities say a plasma television and a framed picture of the University of Nebraska Memorial Stadium were stolen and later sold at a pawn shop.
Johnson, who volunteered at the fundraiser, also faces unrelated charges of domestic assault and obstructing a peace officer. Records do not list an attorney.
An arrest warrant has been issued for 26-year-old Kristin V. Hunt in connection to the theft.
