Two Arrested for Theft of Property
Two people were arrested on Tuesday as a result of a theft investigation. The theft occurred earlier this week in the Sand Valley Community. Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver says deputies and investigations began working on the case and quickly learned that 35-year-old Jason Taylor of Centre, and 37-year-old Lora Smith, also of Centre, were responsible for the theft. Taylor and Smith were hiding from law enforcement at a residence on County Road 540, when they were apprehended. Taylor is wanted in Tennessee and Smith is wanted by Indiana authorities. Sheriff’s Office investigators were able to recover some of the stolen property for the victim in this case. Both are charged with First Degree Theft of Property and remain in the Cherokee County Detention Center.
