BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio - More than $14,000 has been donated online to help a western Ohio woman who said she stole change from a courthouse fountain to buy food and was charged with petty theft.
Police allege Deirdre Romine took $2.87 from a fountain at the Logan County Courthouse in Bellefontaine this month. Romine has said she didn't think the money belonged to anyone and she was jobless and trying to feed herself and her cats.
