Waverly, Tennessee (WTVF) —A man was charged with theft after the wallet of a flood victim in Humphreys County was stolen.
Mark Key was one of 20 people who died in a deadly flood that struck Humphreys County after a torrent wiped him out of Waverly’s home. Police say the key purse somehow ended up in the possession of Andrew Edward Stitt.
Stitt is currently being charged with property theft. Key’s wife told authorities that his wallet contained $ 5,000 in $ 100 increments, along with a driver’s license, debit card, credit card, and other personal documents.
Investigators say there are witnesses who have spoken to Stitt after seeing him holding a large “wad of $ 100” bills after the flood. The suspicion is that Stitt stole his wallet.
According to the affidavit, Stitt “intentionally … acquired the property with the intention of robbing the owner of the property.”
