An employee of the Panhandle Converter And Scrap Metal Company was preparing to leave on a business trip at 3:30 a.m.

That's when he discovered a smashed window on the passenger side of the company truck that was parked in his driveway. A large sum of cash that the man was going to use to make a company purchase, was taken by thieves.

Investigators collected evidence at the scene of the Houston County residence. Numerous checks in the name of Panhandle Converter were also stolen from the truck. They're hoping this may provide a link to a previous crime.

A black wreath still hangs on the front of Panhandle Converter. It's been there since the murder of Perry Griffin. Authorities are hoping this crime may help lead to a break in the murder case.

If you have information about either of these crimes you should call Crimestoppers at 793-7000.
