$10,000 bond for man caught “finding” $140 at Norwood Kroger

Over the weekend, Norwood resident Wayne Matthews was arrested after a witness gave Norwood police a description of a man who allegedly snatched $140 dropped unknowingly by a woman in the Kroger parking lot. Norwood police caught up with Matthews and another man a block away. Initially, he denied finding the dropped cash but wound up confessing when it was discovered in his shoe. The NPD’s Lt. Tom Williams said the money was returned to the woman after Matthews was arrested. Interestingly, the Enquirer states he was charged only with obstruction of official business and not theft, and his bond was set Monday at $10,000.
