The theft victim accused Childers of stealing her teeth and “wearing them around” on Monday, July 22. Later that day, a probation officer who met with Childers stated that she was indeed wearing teeth that “clearly were not hers,” right at her own probation meeting.
Deputy officer Chris Gholson, the same officer who took in the theft complaint, later located and spoke with Childers about the complaint. While questioning Childers at her home on Wednesday, July 24, Gholson “observed the [dentures] in plain view” and saw that it “had the [victim’s] name written on them.”
