A coincidental contact led to the recovery of a stolen Thousand Dollars, according to Anderson Police. At 8:30AM Wednesday morning an officer took a report of a burglary from a vehicle on Howard Street. Among the items taken was a Thousand Dollars cash. Later in the day the same officer was talking to a transient and offered to give him a ride to receive services he seemed in need of. The officer told the man that anyone transported in a police car needs to first be searched for weapons. The transient agreed and the search reportedly turned up items stolen in the vehicle burglary, including the money. When asked to explain, the transient changed his story a few times, and he was arrested.
