ELIZABETHTON — A woman is facing several burglary and theft charges following her indictment by a Carter County grand jury Nov. 8.

Kimberly Leann Whaley, 24, 120 Reeser Road, No. 46, Johnson City, was charged with three counts of car burglary, one count of aggravated burglary, one count of theft over $1,000, one count of theft over $500 and two counts of theft under $500.

The aggravated burglary stems from an Aug. 6, 2012, reported burglary of the home of Sierra Nickles and Wilber Fisher. Items reported stolen in the burglary included a Wii game system, DVD player, surround sound system, television and a safe.

Two of the three alleged car burglaries took place Feb. 9. One was to a vehicle owned by Billy Pate, in which a vehicle console, tool box, duffel bag and fire department equipment was stolen. The other vehicle on that date was owned by Tim Conley and the stolen items included a Magellan global positioning system, a trash bag holder and a wallet.

The third burglary was to a vehicle owned by Hannah Craig. The stolen items included a purse, wallet, gift card and a calculator.

Whaley was arrested on the indictment Tuesday by Deputy Salvatore Caccamo of the Carter County Sheriff’s Department. The arrest was made while Whaley was being held at the Washington County Detention Center. She was transported to Carter County, booked into the Carter County Detention Center, then transported back to the Washington County Detention Center. She is scheduled to answer the charges during the next session of Criminal Court.
