CROSSVILLE — A Cumberland County woman was arrested last week and charged with the burglary of a rural home that occurred earlier this month, according to Sheriff’s Department arrest records.

Heather Marie Hilton, 25, 313 Hubert Conley Rd., is charged with theft in connection with the incident that occurred on Sept. 18, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Sheriff’s Investigator Robert “Bo” Kolros. At the time of her arrest at her home by Deputy Zach Gilpin, she was charged with a burglary that took place at the victim’s home. She has since been released from jail.

On Sept. 18, sheriff’s investigators were called to the Hallie Jones residence on Turkey Blind Rd. where a burglary had taken place. Several items were taken including a checkbook belonging to the victim’s daughter and a 1993 Dodge Dynasty. The house was also vandalized.

According to the arrest warrant, Hilton allegedly sold a 1993 Dodge Dynasty to Wedel Iron and Metal off Hwy. 127 N as scrap. She was reportedly paid $339 for the vehicle.

On Oct. 1, a check stolen from the residence was forged and cashed in the amount of $625 with “cleaning done” written in the memory field of the check.
