A woman set up camera to watch her supply of medications, leading to the arrest of a man accused of tapping her prescription medication supply.
Sixty year old Steven Lee Cash has been arrested on a felony charge of burglary of a habitation after being identified in the resulting videos.
The victim told police that back in April she noticed several of her pain pills appeared to be missing.
A few days went by and she again noticed more pills were gone.
On May 1 she set up a hidden camera in her bedroom which also gave video coverage of her bathroom.
Court papers say that while she was watching a remote view of her camera from her work place, she noticed a man inside her bedroom going through her pill bottles and assorted items on her night stand.
She also saw him pulling a basket from under her sink and going through the items in it.
She called officers to go to her residence.
Officers were also able to see the video and identified the man as Cash who told them he was there to check on a back door.
Court papers also say that later that day when the victim got home she found an envelope taped to her door with ten $20 bills inside with a note that said ” it would never happen again.”
The victim also told police that her back door had been fixed for a long time and that no one had said anything about maintenance being scheduled for her apartment.
Prescription medications that had been missing included hydrocodone and temazepam.
Police obtained a warrant and Cash was booked into the McLennan County jail Tuesday night.
