Marion County sheriff seeks help in finding woman wanted for burglary, grand theft

Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods is asking for the public’s help to locate a 24-year-old woman who is wanted for burglary of an occupied dwelling and grand theft.

Sheriff Woods, in his regular “Wanted by Woods Wednesday” segment on Facebook, asked for assistance with finding Kaylyn Booth.

According to MCSO, Booth’s four-wheeler ran out of gas, and she borrowed a gas can from the victim to get her vehicle off the side of the road. When she returned to the victim’s home to return the gas can, she brought a friend with her.

Sheriff Woods stated that Booth’s friend began arguing with the victim, which caused a distraction. During this argument, Booth allegedly proceeded to enter the victim’s home, stole his wallet, and left the area.

“Kaylyn, the victim helped you, and how do you repay him? You steal from him. Time to do the right thing and turn yourself in,” said Sheriff Woods.

The sheriff added that Booth is unlikely to turn herself in, and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office is hoping that someone in the community knows where she is located.

If anyone has any information on Booth’s whereabouts, Sheriff Woods asks that you call Crime Stoppers of Marion County at 352-368-STOP (7867) and reference 23-06 in your tip. If you use Crime Stoppers and your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
