BARBERTON: A Massillon woman, 26, cashed a check at the Beer and Tobacco World on Wooster Road North and got more than what she bargained.
The manager told police that the woman came in to cash a check from Liberty Tax Service on Feb. 10 and the clerk accidentally gave her $1,000 too much.
The extra money was on the counter to be put in the safe, but the clerk handed the woman the cash, thinking it was hers.
The following day the owner called the woman, who acknowledged the error and said she would return the money that day.
According to a police report, the woman has not returned and will not answer her phone.
