Woman charged in theft of video-game equipment

A Thomson woman has been charged in connection with a residential break-in during which video game consoles, controllers and power cords were stolen, police say.

Investigator Capt. Jamie Bridges, of the Thomson Police Department, identified the suspect as LaShone Marshall. She has been charged with one count of burglary. After her arrest, she was jailed in the McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center.

Ms. Marshall is accused in a break-in at the home of Shawn Singleton in the 800 block of Clements Street on Dec. 16.

Capt. Bridges said a neighbor, Denise Cody, saw Ms. Marshall get dropped off at the residence before the break-in was reported to police.

Ms. Cody also told police that she later provided Ms. Marshall with a ride to a pawnshop. It was before she knew Ms. Marshall was a suspect, Capt. Bridges said.

An Xbox 360, a PlayStation 3, controllers and power cords were taken in the break-in, police said.

Ms. Marshall managed to sell one of the game systems to a pawnshop, police said.

Store workers refused to buy the other one because it did not have the controllers and power cords, Capt. Bridges said.
