     A Nevada man accused of stealing money from a dying man will be allowed to return home — but only if he posts bond first.
    David Bilbrey's bond was originally set at $500, but he was not allowed to leave the state, according to Deputy Ford County Attorney David Belling.
    The court raised Bilbrey's bond to $10,000 Thursday but said if he posts bond, he could leave Kansas and return to Nevada.
     The theft occurred Sept. 11 after Plains resident James Cox was killed in a two-vehicle wreck near Bucklin, according to the Liberal Leader and Times. He was carrying a large sum of money, some of which was scattered on the highway.
     Bilbrey, who was not involved in the wreck, allegedly picked up $600 and left the scene. He was arrested a short time later in Kiowa County.
     Bilbrey was set to enter a plea Thursday to misdemeanor charges of obstruction and theft, but his hearing has been postponed until Oct. 20.
     Belling noted that Bilbrey is innocent until proven guilty.
