Two of the three suspects arrested in August for hitting a local antique dealer twice in one week, and accused of committing similar crimes in other jurisdictions, entered guilty pleas in Cumberland County Criminal Court on Sept. 21.
Marlon B. Bell, 21, of Chickamauga, GA, pleaded guilty to an information charging two counts of theft of more than $1,000 and received two three-year sentences to be served in prison. He was also to pay, jointly and/or with his codefendant, $5,584 restitution to the Antique Mall.
A second defendant in the case, Amanda Faye Carrington, 32, also of Chickamauga, pleaded guilty to an information charging theft of more than $500 and received a two-year suspended sentence to be served on probation. She is also responsible for restitution.
A third co-defendant, Katherine Michelle Buckner, 35, of Rossville, GA, has a charge of theft of more than $1,000 pending action of the grand jury.
The pair — on two occasions in the same week — are accused of entering the Antique Mall, distracting the person on duty, and then stealing antique jewelry and items. Investigators stated Buckner was only present for one of the incidents.
