GREENBRIER, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Greenbrier woman is accused of stealing a man’s wallet after he was killed in a crash in front of her home.
Brittney McCoy was arrested on July 7 and charged with theft, burglary, tampering with evidence and fraudulent use of a credit card.
Greenbrier police alleged McCoy stole items, including a wallet, from Ronald Clinard and his vehicle after he was killed in a traffic accident in front of her residence on July 1.
Clinard’s wallet was stolen from his body and his credit card was used by McCoy at a nearby convenience store to purchase beer, cigarettes and other items.
Police said the purchase was conducted while the crash scene investigation was still ongoing.
“We see a lot of disgusting things as police officers, but this is absolutely one of the most disgusting crimes I have ever seen. It is just completely a disrespectful and heartless act,” said Greenbrier Police Chief K. D. Smith.
McCoy is being held in the Robertson County jail under a $37,000 secured bond.
The investigation is continuing into the possible involvement of others in the theft.
