"While conducting that investigation and checking the suspects vehicle out, they found some of what they thought was reported stolen property," said Gilbert Acciardo with the Laurel County Sheriff's Office.

Police say they found $500 worth of stolen merchandise in the suspects car which she allegedly stole from belk, but flannery she had nothing to do with that.

"She said she swore a statement saying that I had nothing to do with the Belks, and that it was all her. And I'm getting charged with it," said Flanary.

She says she did not have a reason to be shoplifting at Walmart.

Both of the women are from the Middlesboro area.

Sarah Daniels was charged with theft and receiving stolen property, and Rindy Flanary was only charged with receiving stolen property.
