On Saturday September 7, 2019 a Middlesboro woman was arrested on two separate theft charges, one from 2018 the other from this year involving juveniles.


26 year old Lacresha Glover was booked into the Bell County Detention Center on a summons for theft by unlawful taking under $500 and two counts of unlawful transaction with a minor – 3rd degree.


In the complaint, Middlesboro Sgt. Barry Cowan states that on July 14, 2019 Glover went into Wal-Mart with two juveniles, ages 12 and 13. The trio loaded up a buggy full of merchandise valued at $459.59. Sgt. Cowan goes on to state that Glover had the juveniles push the buggy out while she only went through the motions of paying for the merchandise at the self-checkout.


Sgt. Cowan states he confronted Glover on July 28, 2019, advised her of her rights, and that she admitted to knowing that she allowed the juveniles to push out the merchandise that was not paid for.


Glover is also facing a 2018 criminal complaint taken out by Officer Nick Capps in regard to charges of theft by unlawful taking under $500 and theft by deception under $10,000.

In the complaint, Officer Capps states that on October 22, 2018 while she was an employee of Kay Jewelers in the Middlesboro Mall, Glover removed a 14-karat white gold Neil Lane engagement ring valued at $6,249.00.


She is alleged to have also pawned the stolen ring at East End pawn Shop in Middlesboro for $500.00 and then came back to the shop to sell the ring for $1,500.00.


Lacresha Glover was transported to the detention center by Officer Dakota Torstrick, but has since been released from custody.
