Sweetwater woman charged after crowbar drops out of pants

SWEETWATER, Tenn. (AP) -- A Sweetwater woman has been charged with possession of burglary tools after police say a crowbar slipped out of her pants as she was lurking around a church.

McMinn County Sheriff's Deputy Rick Shadrick had pulled into the church parking lot early Saturday morning after he spotted a car parked near the building.

He found 35-year-old Jennifer Hunt walking from behind the building, where she said she was going to bathroom. When she was walking to her car to get her ID, a crowbar dropped from her pants

The officer also found Hunt had a screwdriver and observed pry marks on church doors. Hunt was being held on $2,000 bond pending a Tuesday arraignment.
