Soddy Daisy Woman Charged With Theft And Burglary Of Elderly Couple

Monday, March 10, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

A Soddy Daisy woman was charged with aggravated burglary and theft under $500 after police say 47-year-old Sharon Worley climbed into a side window in a house and stole items belonging to an elderly couple.

The daughter of the couple, Christi Barbee, told police her parents had moved in with her, due to their health and that she was in the process of moving things from their home to storage so they would not be stolen.

 

However, she said when she came over to clean on Feb. 21, she noticed that several items were missing.

When police spoke with a neighbor, Mary Pickett, Ms. Pickett said she was surprised because she had seen a woman at the house, but the woman had shown her a business card and said she was allowed to be there. Ms. Pickett also said the woman told her some of the items inside belonged to her. 

She also said Ms. Worley told her she was going to return later and take more items to a storage unit.

Ms. Pickett said one of the items she saw the woman take was a portable sewer tank for a camper. 

Ms. Worley was arrested at her home on Rocky Top Lane at Soddy Daisy. Bond was set at $10,000.
