This is one unusual story you'd think would come from out here in Hollywood: It involves a Professional Organizer, a bank robber, the FBI, an innocent lunch date, and an elderly woman "crossing the street."
The Dayton (Ohio) Daily News is reporting a story of Professional Organizer Lori Firsdon working for, and having lunch with, an alleged bank robber.
Firsdon was hired recently by 42-year old Eric Morgan to organize Morgan's friend. Firsdon was paid a total of $900 to organize the friend's paperwork clutter-- was "led to believe" Morgan "had come into some money and simply wanted to help his friend out." How sweet. The group of three (Morgan, Firsdon, and the friend) enjoyed lunch courtesy of Morgan to celebrate the completion of the office organization project.
“I had lunch with a bank robber. Oh my,” Firsdon said.
Investigators are thinking Morgan paid Firsdon between a series of bank robberies in Blanchester, Milford and Sabina and a Wells Fargo Bank in Navasota, Texas. Presumably the funds used to pay Firsdon for the organizing job were paid for by the bank robbery.
“He was the perfect gentleman...”
Firsdon, who is an active member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and NAPO-Ohio, noted that prior to lunch she witnessed Morgan help an elderly disabled woman from her car into a restaurant.
Will Firsdon Be Able To Keep Her Consulting Money?
Firsdon contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation last Wednesday. She was told she "may be able to keep the money Morgan paid her" if he is found guilty (as he will be responsible for the debt).
