Man Charged With Stealing From Jim Haslam's Home

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities said a South Carolina man has been charged with stealing cash and jewelry from the home of Jim Haslam, father of Gov. Bill Haslam and founder of the company that is now Pilot Flying J.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported 30-year-old Joshua Ryan Vandeventer was jailed on charges of aggravated burglary, theft of $60,000 or more and theft of $500 or less.

An arrest warrant said Vandeventer pried open a drawer in the home of Jim and Natalie Haslam on March 20 and stole $72,735 in jewelry, plus $1,000 in cash.

The warrant said Vandeventer, of Greenville, S.C., was employed by the Haslams but was fired April 29 after allegedly being videotaped breaking into a drawer.

The Associated Press couldn't determine Saturday if Vandeventer has a lawyer.
