The grandmother of deceased Tennesee toddler, Evelyn Boswell, has been arrested again while already out on bond for theft charges.
Knox News reports that Angela Boswell is behind bars facing burglary and drug charges after she allegedly broke into her own mother’s home and stole items.
According to police, Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office investigators said Boswell, along with a man identified as Larry Chad Fields, 37, walked into a Kingsport area home in Tennessee on Wednesday, then walked out with televisions, tools, and guns. Captain Andy Seabolt with the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the home belongs to Boswell’s mother.
Outside of the home, a woman seated inside a gray Chevrolet Equinox waited for the pair. When they emerged from the home, all three left in the vehicle with the stolen items. The other woman’s identity is unknown at this time.
The incident was caught on a security camera, apparently showed the pair trying to conceal the items as they left the house.
On Thursday, police arrested Boswell in Kingsport. When she arrived at the jail, authorities found drugs in her possession, according to the police report.
“Upon arriving at the jail, Angela Boswell was found to be in possession of a small bag of what appears to be crystal methamphetamine and a $50 bill that appeared to be counterfeit,” authorities said.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Boswell was cited earlier this week for allegedly trying to steal items from a Walmart store with her boyfriend, William McCloud.
Boswell and McCloud, who are both out of jail on bond in connection with a reported stolen BMW, were cited by the Kingsport Police Department on Tuesday for shoplifting. According to CBS, they allegedly tried to leave the store with around $40 worth of unpaid groceries. They’ve both been banned from going to any Walmart stores for life.
Authorities announced in February that they were looking for the BMW because Boswell and McCloud could possibly have information regarding Evelyn’s whereabouts, who, at the time, was missing and the centerpiece of an AMBER Alert.
Police found the pair inside the car in North Carolina and arrested them. Evelyn was not with them.
Both McCloud and Boswell said during a court hearing last month that they did not steal the car. They claimed Evelyn’s mother, Megan “Maggie” Boswell, gave the car as a gift to Angela Boswell, who made bond at the time and was required to wear a GPS ankle monitor upon release.
On March 6, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, along with the TBI, announced that they found Evelyn’s remains on a family member’s property at the 500 block of Muddy Creek Road in Sullivan County. The property belongs to Megan Boswell’s father, Tommy Boswell Sr.
It’s unclear how Evelyn passed away. Officials said the autopsy would remain sealed due to the ongoing investigations.
Angela Boswell and McCloud have not been named suspects in Evelyn’s disappearance and death. So far, no one has been arrested in connection with the toddler’s death.
Angela Boswell told the Bristol Herald Courier that she last saw Evelyn in September, around the time she got into an argument with Megan Boswell. Angela Boswell said she hadn’t seen the baby since the argument and has no idea how Evelyn died or if foul play was involved.
“I don’t know any more than anybody else does. And, you know, I’m waiting on the autopsy results like everybody else is.”
Angela Boswell added that she did not think her daughter or any family member played a part in Evelyn’s death.
Meanwhile, Megan Boswell remains behind bars for allegedly giving inconsistent statements to police, which ultimately hindered the investigation. Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said since the beginning, Boswell has given contradicting information about her daughter’s whereabouts
“Every time we talk to her, her story changes,” Cassidy said. “I’m serious when I say every single time.”
On February 18, the day authorities issued an AMBER Alert for Evelyn, Boswell reportedly told a DCF worker that Evelyn’s father, Ethan Perry, had the child and she planned to pick her up.
Authorities said that Perry, who is stationed in Louisiana and actively serving in the military, did not have the baby.
Boswell later told News 5 that her mother took the baby to someone in a silver camper in Virginia.
Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Andy Seabolt responded to Boswell’s claim. According to the Tennessean, Seabolt said Boswell’s camper claim was “investigated completely.” Authorities did not find Evelyn.
“The claim that Megan made stating that Evelyn was in a camper in Mendota was investigated completely,” Seabolt said.
“The Washington County Virginia Sheriff’s Office along with the United States Marshals checked every campground in Mendota and nothing was found. Megan’s story has changed multiple times throughout this investigation.”
Boswell later reportedly claimed she was denied a lie detector test because she’s pregnant.
“I am pregnant….that’s why they won’t give me a polygraph. Due to policy if you are pregnant they will not give you one,” Megan “Maggie” Boswell previously told News Channel 5.
According to the Sullivan County jail records, however, Boswell is not pregnant.
