ADAMSVILLE, Tenn. — The second person wanted in a 2013 burglary that left a man missing more that $100,000 turned herself on Wednesday. According to the victim, the people arrested were a former employee and a former co-worker. Along with herself, Kathy Aaron, 53, also turned over $55,600 and confessed to the robbery. The stolen electronics have yet to be found. Aaron had been in Alabama. Shawn Vandiver was arrested last week and admitted to the Oct. 26 burglary . The homeowner says he left for a trip on Oct. 19 and found thieves had ransacked his home on South Maple Street when returned days later. Aaron and Vandiver are charged with Aggravated Burglary, Theft of Property $60,000 to $250,000 and Vandalism $1,000 to $10,000. More than 12 search warrants have been issued and served involving the burglary. The homeowner released the following statement to WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News: “I am deeply saddened and disappointed to learn that a former employee and co-worker was involved in such a vicious crime. I do have complete faith in our justice system and look forward to seeing all parties involved being brought to justice and prosecuted appropriately. Over the last six months I have been so impatient so much of the time and wondered where are my rights as a victim. It seemed to be all about the rights of who we knew broke into my home. I had to turn it over to a just God that knew exactly who did it and had a plan to bring them to justice all along. I knew Sheriff Buck and his staff was doing all they could do. My only advice is to protect yourself and your home as best as you can and if it happens to you, let the system work. I do want to say thank you to Guy Buck and the McNairy County Sheriff’s for the countless hours that they worked to solve this case. Also, to Bob Gray in the district attorney’s office, without his help none of this would have been possible.”
