ROCK HILL, S.C. -- A 58-year-old man told police that a woman he met and married on Saturday - and the preacher who married them - stole $600 from him and then disappeared, according to a Rock Hill police report.
Just after 7 p.m. Saturday, the man called a friend to ask if he "knew any girls that he could meet for companionship," according to the report. His friend introduced him to a woman at a motel on Riverview Road, and they called a reverend who said he was with "Rock Hill Chaplain Services" to marry them.
The reverend asked for $100 and performed a ceremony, according to the report.
After the ceremony, the man said he went to the store. When he returned, $600 that he had hidden under the television was gone and so was his new bride.
The man told police he thinks the reverend and woman took his money.
He hasn't been able to find the woman that he supposedly married, according to the report.
There is no listing for Rock Hill Chaplain Services.
