ELIZABETHTON - A burglar reportedly stole $8,000 in cash from a Lynnwood Avenue apartment last week.

Troy Shell told Deputy Brian Smithpeters of the Carter County Sheriff's Department that the burglar entered his bedroom through a window and found the cash in an Agner purse, which had been wrapped in a blanket and placed in the bedroom closet.

Shell said he was in the hospital for several days, starting on Sept. 24. The theft was discovered when Shell's girlfriend, Robin Stanley went to check on the house on Friday and discovered the bedroom window open and all the dresser drawers in the room had been dumped out.
