"The next morning she got in her car, went to work, discovered that the $4,000 was missing and notified us," said Lt. Mark Williams of the Danville police.
"She said that she had taken it out to place in a petty cash fund at a business that her husband owns," he said.
Police found no evidence of a break-in at the house - no kicked in door, no smashed windows. The incident was reported as a lost property case.
"I wouldn't recommend leaving large amounts of cash in a vehicle in a garage for a variety of reasons," said Williams.
Police processed the scene for fingerprints but were unable to locate any. Williams said it's a possibility that the money was stolen, but with no evidence of criminal activity, there's not much they can do.
