Cleveland Cops: Two Caught in Card Caper Captured

Two people are facing aggravated burglary in the theft of a large collection of sports cards taken from a home in Cleveland, Tennessee late last year.

According to a detective,  Enola Gay Arehart, 53, and Earl Bowen, 44, are charged with the theft.  The department has also issued a warrant for the arrest of 35-year-old Jessica Whaley and a fourth person is wanted for questioning.

Police say the victim was hospitalized when the burglary was discovered in December.

Recently, one of the suspects tried to sell the cards at a local shop and the suspicious owner called police who tracked down a vehicle.  That led to the discovery of some of the cards.  Further searches revealed even more and the arrests were made.

The Cleveland Banner has been covering the case like a blanket and their latest article says Arehart and Bowen are in jail.
