SOUTHERN TIER, N.Y. -- New York State Police executed a search warrant Monday at the home of a Chemung County man who remains the key suspect in the search for a missing Florida woman.
Police searched the West Elmira home of David Perry as part of the investigation into Perry receiving retirement benefits he was not entitled too.
Just last month, Perry was arrested for receiving about $340,000 in New York State disability retirement benefits that from 2005 to 2012.
Police removed various items from his home and said authorities could return Tuesday to continue their search.
Perry is the ex-boyfriend and suspect in the case of Kelly Rothwell, who has been missing from her Florida home for more than a year, but police say the search had nothing to do with that case.
Perry was also in Steuben County Court Monday for a bail hearing on the grand larceny charges. His bail was lowered from $100,000 cash to $25,000.
The next court date has not yet been set.
