CARTER COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

The Carter County Sheriff's Office arrested a Myrtle Beach, S.C. woman in a theft case featured in News Channel 11's "Monday's Most Wanted."

The investigation involved the theft of thousands of dollars of new and antique farm equipment from a residence on Big Sandy Road in the Stoney Creek Community.

The items stolen ranged from a custom-made pony wagon, a large doctor's buggy, thousand of pounds of fertilizer in 50 pound bags, plows, scrapers, cultivators, a flatbed trailer, fencing, stainless steel tools and farming equipment, dog lots, and other items.

News Channel 11 featured the unsolved case in Monday's Most Wanted on March 11, 2013.

Tuesday, Police charged Christina Mavis Stills, 41, North Myrtle Beach, S.C. with theft over $10,000 and burglary.

According to the arrest report, Herbert Collins reported the stolen items on February 10th and estimated the value of the property at $16,785.

The arrest report says Stills took metal items to Omni Source in Elizabethton and sold farm equipment to a man in Roan Mountain.

The report says Stills' husband Robert is in the Washington County Detention Center where investigators asked him about the theft and, they say, he admitted to the crime.  According to the jail, Stills is in the jail for felony evading arrest, DUI 7th offense, resisting arrest, and driving on a revoked license 7th offense.

The Stills leased adjoining property and even had been allowed by Collins to let their horses graze on his property, the report said.
