Man charged with stealing cash from radio station

The Associated PressJuly 17, 2014 

— Police say an eastern Kentucky man walked out of a radio station with thousands of dollars in a bank bag, but it may have been his quest for a car that got him caught.

Harlan Police Chief Mike Thomas told WYMT-TV in Hazard (http://bit.ly/1stbj3A) that 24-year-old James Daniel Bailey walked into WTUK on Tuesday and left with a bank bag stuffed with cash.

Police say they found Bailey at Austin's Car Lot in Rosspoint putting a down payment on a vehicle.

Police say they recovered almost all of the money.

Bailey is in the Harlan County Detention Center. Jail records did not list an attorney for Bailey.
