The search is on for a pawn shop manager accused of skipping town with more than a half million in cash and jewelry. Police say security video shows Samuel Bord stealing from three Tri-State Cash America stores, but no one has seen him since.

"I was just stunned, and I'm still stunned," says Diane Washington. All she has left of her most precious jewelry is five pages of receipts. Washington says she pawned a two carat engagement ring, two carat tennis bracelet, and a one carat cluster ring to get a loan at the Cash America store in Bond Hill. She says, "I really believed and trusted them. I never had a problem before. Never."

Police say Samuel Bord had access to the safes at three local Cash America stores and they say security video shows him dumping at least three quarters of a million dollars worth of jewelry and cash into a plastic bin. Police found his car at the airport a couple of days ago, but no sign of Bord.

From their corporate headquarters in Texas, Cash America is offering a $25,000 reward for information on the case. They're telling victims they'll replace stolen items and that they're doing their best to get an identical or at the very least, a similar replacement.

But replacing some of Diane Washington's one-of-a-kind pieces, probably won't be possible. She says, "If they do that, that would be great, but there are some things they probably won't be able to replace."
