Volunteer Accused of Stealing from Fundraiser
OMAHA (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 Jeffrey A. Johnson, 50, 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.
