Police say an Elizabethton woman has been charged with breaking into a home and stealing an antique pelvic massager, leaving her wallet behind.

Police said 45-year-old Tamatha R. Blevins of Elizabethton took the "plastic or latex" antique from a home on December 27. She was arrested on Wednesday.

The homeowner told police someone forced open the back door of the house and took the massager, a U.S. Navy SEAL tactical knife and a glass jar containing over $500 in loose paper and coin money.

The homeowner says he found a wallet with Blevins' driver's license and Social Security card inside, along with two credit cards and a check book in Blevins' name.

Blevins is scheduled to appear in Sessions Court on Feb. 14.
