SATSUMA, FL — A janitor who cleaned the Baker County School District''s bus garage is charged with stealing reward money for information in the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings, a five-year-old who went missing February 9, according to The Florida Times-Union.
Jeremy Leonard was charged with grand theft after being confronted about the missing $670, the story stated.
Leonard told the Times-Union that he found the money and denies stealing anything.
According to the police report, the only person who had access to the building before the money was found missing was Leonard, a substitute janitor who works on an on-call basis. Deputies confronted Leonard and recovered $600 from his home.
Leonard claims he found the unmarked envelope on the floor while cleaning and called his boss to report the discovery but could not reach her, the story noted.
As a result of the incident, and regardless of his innocence or guilt, Leonard no longer works for the school system, the story added.
