Benton Woman Charged with Theft of Vehicle
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MARSHALL COUNTY - A Marshall County woman was arrested Friday on a theft charge.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office says a deputy was dispatched to Lovvo Lane in reference to a stolen vehicle. The victim told police he thought his girlfriend's daughter, 40-year-old Heather Groves of Benton, may have left with it while they were sleeping.

The victim told deputies that Groves had taken the vehicle without permission a few nights earlier. He said Groves has never had permission to take the vehicle.

While the deputy was gathering information from the victim, a call came in about a suspicious vehicle, and the description matched the vehicle in question. The deputy arrived at that scene and verified it was the vehicle in question, and found Groves sitting in the driver's seat.

After further investigation, Groves was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking or disposition-auto $500 or more but under $10,000. She was lodged in the Marshall County Detention Center.
