ALLEGAN, Mich. — A woman who police say was caught on surveillance video stealing from an Allegan business is in custody.

Amanda Brooks-Kolberg, 29, was arrested Thursday, according to Allegan Police. ┬áPolice said Tuesday that she was caught on video stealing a purse that contained a “very large sum of money.”

The purse belonged to the business owner, who was going to use the money inside for a down payment on a house, according to a release.  Police said Friday that less than half of the money was recovered.

Brooks-Kolberg will be arraigned at a later date.
