Cash previously kept under mattress stolen in Cambria

CAMBRIA — A Shawnee road woman told authorities $9,600 she had previously kept under her mattress was stolen while she was on vacation.

The victim told Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies on Monday that she and family members had conducted an exhaustive search of the house in the 5100 block of Shawnee. She had said the money, the proceeds from her business, had been kept under her mattress until she recently moved it to a bank envelope in a bedroom dresser. Deputies said there was no sign of forced entry.
