CHICORA, Pa. (AP) – A western Pennsylvania woman has been charged with stealing money from wedding cards brought to a reception she was attending – and trying to hide the loot in her bra.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 40-year-old Jennifer Ann Martz, of Chicora. State police say she attended Saturday’s wedding with her boyfriend, who was an invited guest.

That Butler Eagle reports guests saw Martz heading to the ladies room after they found 11 cards missing from a gift table. Police say Martz ripped up the cards and tried to flush them down a toilet, while stuffing $475 in cash and $80 in checks into her bra. That’s where other female guests told police they found the loot.

Martz doesn’t have a listed phone.

The groom’s brother, Jeremy Scherer, says Martz “ruined the whole time for everybody.”
