Credit Card Theft Nets ‘Lowlife of Week’ Nomination

June 21, 1985

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) _ The police chief says a man who allegedly stole a wallet from a relief agency volunteer is a candidate for a ″Lowlife of the Week″ award.

Bob Halbert said the last person he bestowed the award on had stolen a family’s Christmas groceries.

Bob Douglas Leslie II, 27, of Denver is in Garfield County Jail on $750 bond, facing charges of theft and theft of a credit device, the chief said.

Leslie went to the police station for assistance on Wednesday, Halbert said, and was given a ride to a relief agency.

Leslie was given vouchers for a hot meal at a restaurant and a bus ticket, plus a promise of a brown-bag lunch he could take along, Halbert said.

Volunteer Jo Crutcher left her desk briefly while she was getting the sack lunch, Halbert said.

Her husband later got a call from a local restaurant saying a man there claimed to be his nephew tried to pay for a $13.51 meal with Mrs. Crutcher’s credit card, the chief said.

If convicted, Leslie faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
