Allegheny County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man they believe stole more than $600 in child support money that was mistakenly left at the metal detector at the entrance to the Allegheny County Courthouse.

About 90 minutes after a person left the envelope containing the money at the metal detector on Friday, a man approached the deputy and asked for it, Sheriff's Lt. Jack Kearney said. Several hours later, the real owner attempted to reclaim the envelope, Kearney said.

The man who took the envelope is described as white, in his 30s, 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 180 pounds with brown hair and slight facial hair. He may have been at the courthouse for a criminal court matter.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call the sheriff's office at 412-350-4714.
