Texas Woman Arrested on Iredell County Larceny Charge

25-year-old Athena Lian Wattanakone of Richland Hills, Texas has been arrested by Iredell County Sheriff’s Deputies on a felony larceny charge.

Events leading to her arrest began on January 10 when Deputies responded to a home on Fern Hill Road near Mooresville. The victim said several thousand dollars worth of jewelry and clothing had been stolen while they were out of town. Detectives learned that the victims left their home in the care of a family friend, Athena Lian Wattanakone. She allegedly took items from the home and shipped most of those items to another state.

Wattanakone was taken into custody on February 27 and placed in the Iredell County Detention Center with bond set at $15,000, secured. She’ll appear in District Court on April 24.

Detectives are still working to recover the stolen property.
