A Panama City woman was arrested last week by the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office on allegations of stealing from the St. Joseph Humane Society’s Faith’s Thrift Hut.

Carolyn Evon Evans, 55, turned herself into authorities last Friday.

Investigators received a report regarding the theft of donated goods from the facility located on 10th Street in Port St. Joe.

Faith’s Thrift Hut helps raise funds for the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society.

Surveillance equipment captured a white female, identified as Evans, stealing a flower pot from the donation drop area outside of the business. Investigators located Evans at her home in Bay County and recovered the flower pot.

Evans admitted stealing donated goods from Faith’s Thrift Hut and told investigators she has been taking items from businesses with after-hour donation drops for quite some time.

Evans turned herself into authorities on a charge of theft and was released the following day on her own recognizance.
