An Athens man has been accused of stealing $2,325 in cash — including about $250 in donations for recent storm victims — from an area market, an official said.
Joey Wade Trousdale, 29, of 25442 Craft Road has been charged with second-degree theft in connection with a theft at White Dove Market at 23010 Nick Davis Road, said Limestone County Sheriff’s Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt.

“He (Trousdale) took about $250 out of a jar for tornado relief plus cash from a money bag,” McNatt said.
Doyle was able to recover about $1,400 of the cash, McNatt said.
