Elmhurst Man Loses $500 Because When He Hides Money He Uses Magazines

The man believes his roommate stole the money but she denied it, police said.

An Elmhurst man lost $500 he stashed in a magazine for safekeeping, police said.

The man reportedly told the cops he rents a bedroom at a South Hawthorne Avenue residence. He slipped $500 into a magazine and placed it in a desk drawer, police said.

The man last saw the money Friday and believes his roommate "stole it since she borrowed the magazine," police said.

That roommate denied stealing the money, police said, as did another roommate, who said "he had not seen the money either."

Officers looked around the residence but said they did not find the money.
