ODESSA, Texas (KMID/KPEJ)- A woman wanted in connection with a series of thefts and burglaries was arrested by the Odessa Police Department last week. Sandra Dee Allen, 55, has been charged with two counts of Criminal Trespassing, two counts of Burglary, and 21 counts of Theft of Property.
According to an OPD report, Allen was caught on camera in January allegedly stealing more than $7,000 worth of merchandise from Best Buy. She was also spotted at Lowes Home Improvement where she allegedly stole about $1,000 worth of tools.
