Two women and a man are lodged in the Shelby County Detention Center, charged with theft of money from a local man's wallet, which police said one of the accused hid in a body cavity.

Shelbyville Police said in its report that once at the detention center, Christi Michele Robbins "pulled a large sum of cash money from inside her vagina," which allegedly was money taken from the victim's wallet.

Robbins, 46, along with Lisa Darlene Downey, 36, and Dennis Earl Dempsey, 50, all of Shelbyville, are charged with theft by unlawful taking.

Shelbyville Police say the two women took a wallet containing $1,000 from Richard Barker while they were visiting his apartment at Shelby Hall in western Shelbyville on Wednesday night. The report says that Dempsey gave the women a ride to Barker's apartment and then also drove them away when they left with the wallet.

The report said that the women, who were "guests" at Barker's apartment, took his wallet when he left the room to brush his teeth.

Barker told police that when he came back into the room, the women were gone, and he looked and saw them leaving the parking lot in a white truck.

Then he told police he noticed his wallet was not on the table where he had left it.

Shelbyville Police Detective Jesse Pauley said that Barker recognized Dempsey's truck when he saw the women leaving with him in the parking lot because the two men worked together at Purnell's Sausage in Simpsonville.

Barker also knew where Dempsey lived, and he called police and gave them that information, and several hours later officers arrested the three at Dempsey's apartment on Valley View Drive.

Pauley said that Robbins voluntarily took the cash out of her body cavity at the jail because he told her he had probable cause to believe she had the money hidden on her person.

"I told her I was going to get a search warrant and take her to the hospital to have it removed if she didn't," Pauley said.

Not all of the $1000 said to be missing was recovered.

Downey and Dempsey both are under a $5,000 bond. Robbins's bond is $10,000 because she has an additional charge of tampering in physical evidence.
