Mary Alice White was found in possession of over 10K in stolen merchandise reportedly taken from Deen's house. According to the police report filed by her husband, Michael Groover, and obtained by TMZ, the haul included jewelry and other precious metals belonging to the couple (probably a set of titanium tongs to turn over the sumo chicken crackling in house-made lard).
