STEWARTVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) – Authorities are looking for a person who may have tampered with a bank deposit box and taken at least $1,000.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident that happened at Bremer Bank in Stewartville.

Deputies said someone used a sticky rat trip device to capture whatever was put inside the deposit box outside the bank.

A piece of the trap was left behind at the scene.

A 50-year-old woman said she deposited $1,000 on Sunday, but never received the funds to her account.

The bank discovered the trap Wednesday afternoon and believe it may have been placed there between Saturday and Tuesday.

The sheriff’s office said they might look to video for any clues.
