A Rockcastle County man is out of jail after State Police charged him with stealing from a reward fund.

Randy Gross was arrested on Tuesday after court documents revealed he had taken donations that belonged to the Brookelyn Farthing Reward Fund.

The documents said Gross took a total of $263 from December 4 - 6, while promising donators their money would go toward finding the missing teen.

Brookelyn Farthing disappeared in June.

Gross said he confessed to keeping the money because he was threatened by a detective.

He said he had always planned on giving the money to the family.
