Crystal Lacomb caught with meth after stealing sister-in-law’s Dodge Dakota


41-year-old Crystal Diane Lacomb was found with Edward Cooper inside a stolen Dodge Dakota at a Quinn Circle residence in the afternoon hours of November 15th, 2022. Officers observed this and conducted a “follow-up,” during which they located Lacomb in the driver’s seat and Cooper in the passenger seat, then detained them. Officers spoke with Lacomb, who stated that the vehicle was her sister-in-law’s, Jessica Fincher, advising that she had text messages to prove it. Deputies called Fincher, who said she allowed her to drive it near the house, and when she found out that she had taken her vehicle to Tennessee, she tried to call her several times to return it, but she never answered. Then, Fincher warned Lacomb that she would report it as stolen if she did not bring it back.

Afterward, officers discovered Lacomb had an active FTA warrant out of Shelby County from December 15th, 2021. Officers searched Lacomb’s person and found a clear bag of an unknown substance, later identified as 2.5 grams of methamphetamine, as well as a black knife/ brass knuckles. Then, officers searched the car and found two clear pipes near the carport and a loaded syringe inside a red toolbox in the truck bed, which Cooper later admitted were his. Cooper spoke with the police and corroborated Lacomb’s statement, adding that she believed she had a miscarriage and was not speaking with Fincher or her brother because of it. A warrant was issued for her arrest on November 16th, 2022. Lacomb was later taken into custody for felony possession of methamphetamine, possession of a prohibited weapon, and theft on May 22nd, 2024.


Crystal Diane Lacomb of North Bay Drive Millington, TN, was booked into the Shelby County Jail on May 22nd, charged with possession of prohibited weapons, theft of property and possession of methamphetamines. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $12,500.
