A Flintstone, Ga. woman who was shot in the leg now has been arrested on theft charges.

Walker County authorities say Aundrea Couch stole a car and a fire-safe box with two guns and pain medication inside and then hours later showed up at her sister's house with a shotgun wound to the leg.

Sheriff Steve Wilson said officers still don't know how Couch was shot, but they've been able to prove that she stole from a friend she was living with on Oct. 29.

Couch has been charged with felony theft of a motor vehicle, two firearms and medication, Wilson said. Couch's sister Amber Graham and Graham's boyfriend Kenny Motley also have been arrested, the sheriff said.

Graham was charged with obstruction, while Motley was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of theft by receiving stolen property.
