The employee said that he had seen a Facebook post from a former Silver Fox deckhand, Hannah Marie Hill, 21, attempting to sell a 55-inch LG television similar to one that had been taken. When police arrived at Hill’s apartment a neighbor informed him that he thought they were trafficking drugs and that he had heard Hill and Harold Alvin Sargeant, 20, unloading several heavy items from their pickup truck around 1 a.m. The night before, although he had not witnessed the act. When confronted, Hill allegedly told police she had a TV belonging to Silver Fox Lodge in her apartment. She also said that she had entered the Lodge while Sargeant waited in the truck. Sargeant denied any knowledge of the burglary or the whereabouts of the stolen property. Hill contacted police on Oct. 11 and said she had another TV to turn in, a 40-inch Olevia. Both Hannah Marie Hill and Harold Alvin Sargeant have been charged with burglary in the first degree; theft in the second degree and tampering with physical evidence. All class C Felonies. Authorities believe the thefts are drug related.
