According to a report filed by deputy Robert Jones of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Deborah Haney said someone entered her Pontiac Sunfire Thursday and took the cash and card from the purse. The purse was found where it had been stored.

A person of interest was named in the case, according to the report.
