LAS VEGAS — Police armed with a search warrant found $131,600 in a safe deposit box Monday as they continued to investigate the swindle of a 76-year-old Los Angeles man.
Metro Police Lt. Joe Greenwood said $270,000 has now been recovered in the scam and another $30,000 to $40,000 is missing.
Found in Safe Deposit Box
The money was in a safe deposit box rented to Den and Judy Miller and was contained in a pillowcase, Greenwood said.
The Millers and Susan Tom were arrested last week after detectives in Maywood, Calif., learned that Judy Miller, also known as Judy Ely, had married the 76-year-old man in Las Vegas on March 23.
