Deputy Chuck Marshall was dispatched on May 31 to the Spurger Mini-Mart in reference to a theft. When Deputy Marshall arrived on scene, the manager of the convenience store played a surveillance video from May 30 at approximately 5:35 p.m.
The video showed a female, later identified as Tanya Sanders and a male, later identified as David Callaway enter the store. Shortly after entering, Sanders took some candy from the shelf and put it in her shorts, then took some additional candy and entered the bathroom.
While Sanders was in the bathroom, the video showed Callaway take some more candy and bring it to the bathroom that Sanders was in and hand it to her. Sanders then excited the bathroom, stole some ice cream and put it underneath her shirt.
After paying for a fountain drink, Sanders and Callaway exited the store and took the items from her shorts and shirt and put them into a white Dodge truck sitting in the parking lot.
Deputy Marshall located both Sanders and Callaway and Sanders admitted to taking the items from the store.
Callaway reported that he did not remember being at the Spurger mini mart on May 30 because he was intoxicated, but eventually admitted to the theft.
Sanders and Callaway were issued Criminal Trespass Warnings for Spurger Mini Mart and charged with Class C Theft.
