The lovely couple pictured above are Mindy K. McGhee and 21-year-old Brian T. Dykes from LaFollette, TN. These two lovebirds were married in a sweet little ceremony at the Angel’s View Wedding Chapel in the Black Bear Ridge Resort right outside of Pigeon Forge, TN. They also rented a cabin at the resort but dangitall, that stuff is expensive.
Around one in the morning this past Thursday one of the employees of the wedding chapel had forgotten something at work and went to retrieve it when she noticed that the door was broken and the cash box containing around $500 was missing. She also saw that Sykes’ car was parked out back and called the police.
A little while later a Sevier County Sheriff’s Deputy noticed their car at the Denny’s in Pigeon Forge. The also found the lock box in the garbage at a convenience store nearby. When questioned the two admitted to having stolen the money and breaking into the chapel after they made incriminating statements to officers.
These two losers are now lodged in the Sevier County Jail on $10,000 bond each.
