Theft in Sullivan

A Sullivan man is behind bars after a theft over the weekend. Officers of the Sullivan Police Department responded to the parking lot of the Frick's Market for a report of a disturbance.
Upon arrival, officers learned that a 28 year old male from Sullivan had been approached by Matthew Vanness who asked him for some change. The 28 year old pulled some money out of his pocket at which time Vanness grabbed all of the money and attempted to place it into his own pocket. The victim tried, but was unable to stop Vanness. The victim reported $50 in cash was taken. Officers of the Sullivan Police Department located Vanness at his residence in the 600 block of North Olive Street and took him into custody. A warrant for Robbery in the Second Degree was issued for Matthew Vanness through the Franklin County Circuit Court. Bond was set at $30,000 cash. Vanness is currently being held at the Franklin County Jail.
