Woman discovers her driveway stolen...and theif returns again for more of it
On Tuesday, December 11, 2012, Rachel L. McCarty of Reddick, Florida, returned home to find out she was a victim of theft. She didn’t even have to go into the house to see she was a victim.
Her driveway had been stolen.
Upon returning home from running errands on Tuesday, she felt a big “bump.” Upon exiting the vehicle, McCarty saw that over 300 square feet of concrete pavers were missing. “In my 22 years with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, I’ve never seen someone’s driveway stolen.” said Capt. Eric Rawls of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
Here’s where the stupidity comes in to play.
On Thursday, December 13, 2012, the alleged thief returned to get the remaining pavers. Apparently he didn’t think anyone would have noticed the missing driveway and might be on the look out. Police arrested Anthony O. Jones, 49, and charged him with grand theft. “I can’t believe they came back. I’m glad someone was caught,” said McCarty.
