Deborah Heinrich said she opened it to find who it belonged to and then started making phone calls.
Police phoned Heinrich back and asked her for the wallet. She said she was going to hang on to it until she heard from McCreary what he wanted her to do. She said police became aggressive and demanding, but she held firm.
“I just didn’t need to be bullied,” she said. Police then arrested Heinrich, and charged her with interference.
“I said, ‘Are you serious? I’m going to jail for trying to return a guy’s wallet to him,’” Heinrich said.
The first attempt to prosecute her ended in a mistrial.
The judge has set a new trial date for Jan. 13.
