PlayStations stolen from pawn shop owner pawned; 2 arrested

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities say two people who tried to pawn some stolen PlayStations didn’t realize that they had burgled the home of the pawn shop owner.

Citing a Clarksville, Tennessee police report, The Leaf-Chronicle says 30-year-old Jeremy A. Watts and 24-year-old Jessica F. Heady tried to sell two PlayStation systems along with controllers, video games and DVDs.

The pawn shop owner, Edward Dial, said he recognized the items and went home to check. Sure enough, his house had been broken into. Watts and Heady were arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated burglary. Both were held on $50,000 bond. It is unclear whether either has an attorney.

Police say the stolen property was valued at more than $1,000.
