MILTON, Ga. – A moving man is suspected in stealing more than $2,000 in cash from his partner July 30.

The two men had driven up to Milton from Texas as part of a moving contract. The lead driver said he kept an envelope of cash with him, since the company only takes cash for direct moving jobs. The money was kept beneath the seat in the truck’s cab, which was kept locked.

According to the driver, they were working on the moving job when his partner, Alex Kristopher Kirksey, 27, of Mobile, Alabama, asked for the truck’s keys to charge his phone. An hour later, the partner had not returned. The driver checked and saw items in the cab were strewn about and the money gone, along with his partner.

Warrants for theft by taking more than $1,500 were issued for Kirksey.
