SHANNON – A Tupelo woman was arrested on grand larceny and disposing of stolen property charges Friday.

A tenant of a Willow Street trailer home reported her property taken from the trailer. Shannon Police Chief Desiree Kirshner said the property was later found in the possession of a maintenance worker, who allegedly told police his boss, Teresa Treadway, 55, told him to clean out the trailer and take what he wanted.

Kirshner said the lease contained language indicating property left in a rental unit would be placed in storage but said either way, personal property cannot be taken as collateral in a rental situation.

Treadway’s bond was set at $500 in the Lee County Justice Court, and she has since bonded out.
