Troy police have arrested a sixth person suspected of the involvement of the theft of $8,000 worth of money cards from a local business in May 2017.

Stelitia Weathersbe, 24, of Stone Mountain, Ga., is the latest person to be arrested in connection with the case, turning herself into the Troy Police Department on January 22.

According to Troy Police Chief Randall Barr, there were a total of seven people involved in the theft, including two employees: Darren Pass, 20, and Quentin Bessent, 30, both of Troy.

Barr said Bessent and Pass facilitated the theft of a total of 16 $500 worth of money cards that were distributed to five other people, including Kristopher Eric Cullings, 22, and Tray Camphor, 23, both of Atlanta. Cullings and Camphor were both arrested in 2017.
