Rockwood police are investigating a theft that occurred at Victorian Square.

The incident was reported on Dec. 23, and the alleged victim is an elderly resident at the assisted living facility.

“The purse of Lola Fickey was reported stolen out of her room overnight,” Rockwood officer Jared Hall wrote in his report.

“I was told that earlier in the week $40 was taken from her purse along with checks drawn on Regions Bank.”

Hall said he checked the area, but the investigation didn’t yield any clues about who took Fickey’s purse.

“I also spoke with Trudy Smith, who is in charge of the floor about the matter,” the report said. “No leads are known at this time.”
