Suspect accused of stealing safe, contents


Charges have been filed against a woman accused of stealing a safe containing several thousand dollars from a Wade Drive home.

Taylor Nichelle Lankford, 26, of Vine Street in Wartrace allegedly took the safe, which also contained a Springfield XDS 9mm pistol, on July 27, according to warrants filed last week by Shelbyville police.
She was arrested Aug. 3 in a traffic stop by Detective Cody Swift. Several containers of unprescribed prescription drugs, 0.17 ounces of crystal methamphetamine, glass pipes and a grinder were found in her vehicle.
Lankford was charged with theft of property, possession of schedule II, IV and V drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $24,000.
Improper dress
A homeless woman who claimed her clothing was stolen allegedly entered the Shelbyville Walmart late Tuesday night wearing only a shirt and panties, then clothed herself with shoplifted items and attempted to walk out without paying, Shelbyville police said.
Ginger Diana Lamb, 44, told Officer Sam Campbell her own clothing was taken at Fisherman’s Park under the Duck River bridge. Store security personnel said they watched Lamb put on pajama pants, two tank tops and athletic shoes and attempt to walk out without paying. A stolen thong was found in her purse, according to the police report.
Lamb was charged with shoplifting and held on $1,500 bond.
Meth charge
Crystal methamphetamine was found on a man who allegedly walked away from a crash on Blue Ribbon Parkway Monday afternoon, Shelbyville police said.
James Eric Lynch, 41, of Ranchero Drive was later found at a home on Industrial Parkway after a police dispatcher traced his vehicle’s license number. Lynch told Officer Brandi Merlo he thought he fell asleep at the wheel.
Merlo was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a revoked license. He was searched and approximately 1.5 grams of crystal meth was found, resulting in an additional charge of possession of a schedule II drug. He was held on $5,000 bond.
