SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

A Sullivan East High School cafeteria worker is facing theft charges.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office said the 29-year-old woman denied taking $27 from a co-worker's purse and then told them she'd strip to prove it.

Officers told her it wasn't necessary, but they say she still took off her clothes.

They say they found the missing $27 in one of the shoes she removed.
