DUNEDIN – A man hired to transport bodies from homes to a local funeral home was arrested Thursday afternoon for grand theft.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies say Terrance Stubblefield, 44, of St. Petersburg, a funeral home removal service employee, stole jewelry from a deceased victim while he was in her home to remove the body.

According to the sheriff’s report, deputies responded to a death investigation at 1701 Pinehurst Road, Unit 23D in Dunedin at about 12:46 p.m. Aug. 21. During their investigation, an employee from Alternate Transport Service Inc., contracted through Sylvan Abbey Funeral Home in Clearwater, arrived to the home to remove the body.

As the employee was exiting the residence, deputies noticed a chain necklace hanging from the suspect’s pants pocket. Deputies attempted to stop the suspect, who then entered his vehicle and placed the jewelry inside. Deputies then questioned the suspect about the jewelry and were told that the jewelry belonged to the man’s girlfriend.

Deputies were able to photograph the jewelry, valued at about $1,000. They showed the photo to the victim’s daughter, who positively identified the jewelry as belonging to the deceased victim, 88-year-old Maryellen Woods. Deputies again questioned the suspect who reportedly admitted to the theft allegations.
