Subsequent to that arrest, she allegedly admitted to another infraction. Police say she told them that on Dec. 22, she had been in possession of a stolen MacBook Pro, worth $1,300.

According to an arrest report, the rightful owner of the stolen computer logged into their account from a remote location, and typed a message, which appeared on the screen of the stolen laptop.

It said, "Bring my [expletive] back!"

After reading the message, Sewell allegedly took the computer and hid it in the woods near the intersection of Poplar Level Rd. and E. Indian Trail.

As previously noted, Sewell would eventually be arrested on another matter in which she was accused of being a heroin dealer after police searched her east Louisville apartment.

It happened Jan. 7 an apartment on Breckenridge Lane, near Kromer Drive.

In the bottom kitchen shelf, police say they found a coffee grinder with white powder residue. Officers also allegedly found numerous baggies with missing corners and three stacks of cash held together by rubber bands.

Marijuana was found in her vehicle, according to the arrest report.
