(AP) CHICORA, Pa. - A Pennsylvania woman has been charged with stealing money from cards brought to a wedding reception she was attending _ and trying to hide the loot in her bra.

State police say 40-year-old Jennifer Ann Martz, of Chicora, attended Saturday’s wedding with her boyfriend, who was an invited guest.

The Butler Eagle reports guests found 11 cards missing from a gift table and noticed Martz heading to the ladies room. Police say Martz ripped up the cards and tried to flush them down a toilet, while stuffing $475 in cash and $80 in checks into her bra. That’s where other female guests told police they found the loot.

Martz doesn’t have a listed phone, and online court records don’t list an attorney for her.

The groom’s brother, Jeremy Scherer, says Martz "ruined the whole time for everybody."
