Television Interview Lands Two Women In Jail

Friday, June 3, 2016

Receiving notoriety from a television interview can make you famous, but it can also surprisingly land you in jail… Two women who sought out a Birmingham television crew for an on-camera interview recently found that out. According to Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Matthew Wade, Gail Lynn Harbin and Sherry Grace Robinson were arrested on charges of receiving stolen property for items stolen more than a year ago from Valley Antiques in Alexandria. Today, Chief Deputy Wade gave a press conference discussing the incident. The two women were recognized from an interview at the scene of a crime in Talladega County. Wade says when the interview aired, the owner of Valley Antiques recognized the women from surveillance video of the burglary. Wade says Harbin is charged with Third Degree Receiving Stolen Property and Resisting Arrest. Robinson is charged with Third Degree Receiving Stolen Property. Both of their bonds are set at $3,000 a piece. The deputy who made the arrest also noticed 12 marijuana plants growing on the front porch of the house where the arrest was made. Wade said marijuana charges for that crime will come down the line.
