DAYTON, Ohio — Police in Dayton say a wedding guest tried to make off with checks and cash for the newlyweds.

Officers were called to the wedding reception late Saturday night after workers noticed that a safe had been emptied out.

Police say about $6,800 was found in unopened wedding cards inside a tuxedo garment bag belonging to one of the guests.

A police report says surveillance video showed a man entering the office and later walking out with the garment bag.

The man told police he didn't know how the items got in the bag and thought an employee might have placed the wedding cards inside.

He's was being held in jail on suspicion of felony theft.
