Some people have jewel theft down to a science. Quashanda J. Wolfe is not one of them.
Records at the Kingsport Police Department state the incident occurred at approximately 11:20 Thursday morning. A loss prevention officer at the East Stone Drive store allegedly observed a female with wire cutters in the jewelry section.The suspect, later identified as Quashanda J. Wolfe, 34, reportedly cut a security cable that was attached to a counter top display case. A police report says it contained 37 separate pairs of earrings, valued at $249.99 a piece.Wolfe then loaded the approximately three feet tall glass container into her buggy, according to loss prevention, and proceeded to wheel it out the front doors.
She didn’t get far before being stopped by loss prevention, which is good news if your job is loss prevention. She was charged with vandalism and theft over $1,000.
