Sarah Ann Crawford, 26, of 1822 Highland St., Kingsport, was arrested Wednesday afternoon. The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office reports she is charged with felony theft in connection to a November theft report on Millington Court.
The victim contacted police after discovering $5,000 in jewelry missing from her home. She reportedly named the suspect as Crawford, a woman hired to clean the residence.
SCSO detectives later found receipts and photos for the jewelry at a gold buying business in Kingsport, reportedly learning Crawford was the seller. Police say Crawford, who is facing similar charges in Washington County, Tenn., was employed by a small, locally owned cleaning business.
Anyone believing they may have been victimized by Crawford is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (423) 279-7500, extension 222.
