CAMPBELL COUNTY, Tenn. — A man and woman are being charged with theft after the Campbell County's Sheriff's Office said deputies caught them trying to sell thousands of dollars worth of stolen goods on Facebook.

The CCSO said Terry Vickery and Misti Lambdin admitted to stealing roughly $17,000 worth of items out of storage sheds. Deputies said the break-ins happened at a storage facility on Mt. Paren Road in Jacksboro beginning in February.

During the investigation, deputies said video footage showed locks being picked. The stolen items included a wide variety of hand and power tools, yard equipment, baseball cards, a coffee maker, magazines, old electronics, a loose kitchen sink faucet, and more.
