Codie Bellamy-Owens MySpace
Church Hill, TN (The Weekly Vice) - Codie Lea Bellamy-Owens, a 22-year-old Tennessee woman was jailed after she embezzled over $5,000 from a Kingsport Captain D's, because she was.....she was....
Well, apparently for no other reason but because she "was stupid."
According to Kingsport police, Captain D's contacted police after an employee allegedly spotted Owens on a surveillance video stealing money from a register she was operating. A check of the register revealed that $400 was missing.
That incident led to the discovery of over $5,000 that was missing since January 1st, which computerized register records showed were all linked to Owens.
Investigators say when they confronted Owens, she admitted to taking the cash, but didn't know the total amount she had stolen. When asked if financial difficulties caused her to steal the money, she stated "No, I was just stupid".
Owens was booked into jail on a charge of theft over $1,000.
