KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) -- Someone who walked into the Higher Ground Baptist Church took the low road out.
Police in Kingsport have charged 25-year-old Cassie K. Chapman with felony theft after a bass guitar that was stolen from the church showed up at a pawn shop less than a mile away.
Surveillance video from the church showed two women and a small child walking in on March 30, according to the Associated Press.
A court affidavit states a pawn shop employee called police and said the shop had just bought the instrument for $20. Video from the store showed the same woman as the church surveillance did.
Chapman was arrested at a motel on Thursday. She was held Friday at the Kingsport Jail, where records did not show whether she had an attorney.
