People v Sharonee Hyson

On October 4, 2017, a jury found defendant Sharonee Hyson guilty of first degree burglary, felony possession of a stolen vehicle, and two counts of unlawful possession of personal information.

On April 2, 2017, Piedmont Police were alerted to a stolen vehicle entering the city. Officers responded and attempted to pull over Defendant Hyson, however she sped off through the neighborhood and officers elected not to pursue. However, Defendant Hyson drove into a cul-de-sac and decided to then flee on foot through residents' yards.

While fleeing through yards, Defendant Hyson saw that a resident had left their patio doors open, exposing the inside of their home. Defendant Hyson took the opportunity to enter the home and take various personal items while the residents were upstairs.

Piedmont police saw Defendant Hyson walking away from the scene with the loss, however, they were unable to to stop her. Piedmont Police investigated the abandoned car and located a tablet where Defendant Hyson had logged into Facebook and they were able to ID her.

A sentencing date is yet to be determined.
