Crime Tracker

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A former employee who recently quit her job at a KFC in Madison used her individual code to disable the alarm system when she broke in after hours and stole cash, a Metro police report states.

Heidi Jones, 40, was charged Wednesday with burglary.

According to an arrest affidavit, a hooded individual used a key March 25 to enter the KFC on Gallatin Pike North, where the person disabled the alarm, entered the safe with a code and stole $525 in cash.

When management viewed surveillance video of the break-in, they identified the burglar as Jones, an employee who recently quit but still had keys to the business, the paperwork states.

Metro police said management confirmed with the alarm company that Jones’ code was used to disarm the security system.

When Jones returned to the business to pick up her final check, officers said she was confronted by managers and admitted to the crime.

Jones was lodged in the Metro jail on a $5,000 bond.

Her initial court appearance was scheduled for June 21.
