Teen cheerleader stole $187 from wheelchair-bound Georgia boy
Just yesterday,A teenage cheerleader stole $187 from a wheelchair-bound boy who had earned the money selling t-shirts for a charity, police charge. Chelsea Steele, 17, was arrested last Friday, a few hours after she allegedly robbed Joseph Green at a Marietta, Georgia community pool house where Green was "selling t-shirts and hats...for charity," according to a criminal warrant.
Steele, who attends Sprayberry High School, is listed as a member of the school's varsity cheerleading squad in a roster available for downloading from the school's web site (though it appears that her name was scrubbed elsewhere from the site following her July 3 bust). Steele, pictured below in a Cobb County Sheriff's Office mug shot, is facing a felony robbery count (she was also hit with an underage alcohol possession rap).
Police are investigating whether Steele had accomplices, since she was spotted fleeing the pool house in the company of a friend, with whom she departed the area in a Ford Taurus.
