Shopping Channel Employee Accused Of Jewelry Theft

Knoxville (AP) -- An employee of the Jewelry Television home-shopping channel has been arrested on charges of stealing nearly $30,000 in jewelry from the company.

A spokeswoman for the Knox County Sheriff's Office says 49-year-old Wanda June Johnson of Alcoa was charged with theft and released Monday on $25,000 bond.

A sheriff's report states an unidentified co-worker was videotaped in late February placing the jewelry in a tub at the network's distribution center, then Johnson was recorded taking the tub to her car on March second.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Martha Dooley says the co-worker has not been charged, but the investigation is continuing.

    too bad this woman got greedy and had this happen. she and her husband had good jobs at JTV and i seriously doubt that she really needed to steal to get by. of course she might have been one of those kind that spent money as fast as she got her hands on it.
