Brittany Leatherberry is charged with embezzlement under contract after she allegedly sold stolen storage units on Facebook. She was released on a $10,000 bond on Friday.

On Thursday, Oct. 28, deputies from the Claiborne County Sheriff Department responded to an area back of Tillman Road with a complaint of stolen storage buildings.

During the start of this investigation, Blue House Rental filed a complaint regarding their storage units that were rented out to Leatherberry who, at some point, posted the units for sale on Facebook Marketplace for a cash profit.

The Claiborne County Sheriff Department was able to recover most of the storage units. The recovered storage units are currently stored on Highway 18 at the County Barn. The Claiborne County Sheriff Department is currently in the process of trying to locate an additional five storage units that have not been able to located. The units were sold to various individuals.

“We are willing to give anyone that’s in possession of one of these units an ample opportunity to return the unit(s) or they will be facing possible charges of receiving stolen property, in this case is a felony,” stated the Sheriff Department.
This case has been bound over to the Grand Jury.
