GREENFIELD – A central Indiana coroner swept into office after her predecessor arrived intoxicated at the scene of a death investigation faces legal problems of her own after allegedly stealing two toy trucks from a Wal-Mart on Thanksgiving Day.
Hancock County Coroner Crystel Myers was arrested at her Greenfield apartment Friday and charged with theft, police said.
An affidavit said surveillance video showed Myers and 21-year-old Jordan Rose, of Richmond, going through a self-checkout line and paying for some but not all of the items in their cart. Myers stood by while Rose, who is also charged with theft, used a hand-held scanner to ring up one monster truck in the cart while passing over two others. The trucks were valued at $50 each.
