GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Police say a maintenance man used a man's ATM card before calling 911 after finding him dead or dying in a Gainesville apartment.

The Gainesville Sun reports police learned about the theft three weeks after J.W. White died on July 1. The man's brother called authorities after finding an ATM transaction on White's Bank of America account minutes before paramedics arrived at the apartment.

Police arrested 52-year-old Clarence Davis Monday. He remains in the Alachua County Jail on $5,000 bail.

Video footage shows Davis checking the balance and making two withdrawals from White's account for $611.90. Davis told police he had permission to withdraw the money to pay rent and other bills for White.

Police say Davis admitted to using the money to restore the apartment to re-rent it.

I guess this thug only wanted 'cold hard cash'.
