Crime Behind (Candy) Bars

Crime can occur anywhere, even at the Cannon County Jail.

Brittany Lynn Ross, 3331 Hollow Springs Rd., Bradyville, who is serving time for violation of probation, was charged Aug. 16 with theft under $500 by the Cannon County Sheriff's Department.

Ross is accused of stealing a candy bar from fellow prisoner Lisa Pyles, who is awaiting a grand jury appearance on charges of passing worthless checks.

According to the report filed by Deputy Anthony Young, Ross committed the alleged offense "with the intent to deprive the owner of property without effective consent."

Ross will appear in Cannon County General Sessions Court on Oct. 5, 2010 to answer the charge.
