BAXTER, Tenn. - Tennessee's State Parks have been a popular spot for campers and vacationers this summer. But something about the parks is also attracting the attention of criminals. 

Officials believe they have caught two people who are responsible for breaking in to 22 different vehicles at six different Tennessee State Parks over the last month.

"They destroyed my car; stole everything I had, and made me feel violated in every way," said Vickey Marlow who had her Chevy Trailblazer broken into last month while she was hiking.

In total, the thieves made off with $6,000 in jewelry from Vickey's SUV-- jewelry she handmade over the last few months to help start her own business.

"They didn't just steal my purse, they stole my livelihood, what I personally made," Vickey adds.

The thieves also took her birth certificate, credit cards, and driver's license. 

"They're out there destroying people's lives," she says.

On Sunday, a State Trooper in Georgia pulled over a car driving 20 MPH over the speed limit through a state park. That trooper eventually determined the two people in the car, Timothy Featherstone and Barbara Covington, had multiple warrants out for their arrests. Police believe they are the two responsible for the break-ins in Tennessee's parks.

There are multiple investigations underway surrounding this case in both Georgia and Tennessee. So far, no charges have been formally filed.
