An Auburn woman contacted police after her boyfriend moved out taking her cell phone and money with him.
The woman said she had recently allowed her boyfriend to use one of her cell phones. She also asked him to keep $800 of her money because she did not feel comfortable carrying around such a large amount of money.
When the woman returned home on July 23, she discovered her boyfriend had packed his things and taken her phone and cash.
The woman said she did not wish to press charges, but wanted her cell phone and money returned.
No charges were filed.
