House Burglary Arrest

A Philadelphia woman is charged with stealing from a house where she worked.

Jodie Ferguson, 18, is charged with stealing almost $30,000 worth of items from a residence on Highway 495.

"I think she was her (the homeowner's) hair dresser. She had been there to do her hair. She (Jodie Ferguson) came back to the house after everyone was gone and stole an undetermined amount of money. It involved old money for collections and a few jewelry pieces. The case was probably valued at close to $30,000 of everything that was taken," said Kemper County Sheriff James Moore.

Bond for Ferguson was set at $5,000.

    Crime doesn't pay! You get caught every time. Shame on you. No matter whether you are rich or poor stealing is stealing. "Thou shall not steal" I feel sorry for your family and the shame you have brought to them.

    She is following the example that the liberals are promoting: Robin Hood. Take front the "bad rich" people and give to the poor. To her, this individual was richer than her so she felt it was ok to take some. It's just a smaller scale. Sad but this is how America is teaching it's youth today.
    Yeah, I expect a lot of haters to comment.

      That is a stretch. Let's leave politics out and just say she was a stupid, young kid.
