BEAUFORT, S.C. — A former "American Idol" contestant from Beaufort was arrested after she allegedly stole a pest control truck, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

Haley Davis, 29, was charged Monday with grand larceny in connection with the theft of a Collins Pest Control 2013 GMC Sierra truck worth $35,000. She drove it to her residence on Pine Cove Street in Beaufort, the report said.

Davis was a contestant on season 12 of "American Idol." She advanced to the Hollywood round of the show but did not make the top 40. St. Helena Island native Candice Glover went on to win that season of "Idol."

Davis was released from the Beaufort County Detention Center on Monday on her own recognizance, according to the jail log.
