Last week Deputy Christopher Chapman was dispatched to take a report of theft from Ben Dykes. Mr. Dykes reported that seven fishing poles valued at approximately $1,300 were stolen from his boat that was on the carport of his home.
Some of the stolen poles were located at the Cash Express pawn shop by Deputy Chapman. After having Dykes identify the poles Deputy Chapman obtained the surveillance video from the store. The video showed Tasha Farmer, 30 of 317 East Hemlock Street in LaFollette, pawning the poles. Deputy Chapman also received the pawn receipts where Farmer had signed her name and provided her driver’s license number.
A few days later Deputy Chapman located Farmer. Farmer admitted to pawning the poles. SHe also reportedly claimed she had purchased them from a man named Tommy.
Farmer was arrested and charged with Theft of Property $1,000-$2,499.
