In our shoplifting story of the day, over $700 in merchandise was stolen from the Walmart store this past Sunday. The theft occurred at the store on South Rutherford Boulevard.
A loss prevention worker in the store caught Carolyn Jo Roberts before she left the parking lot and she was eventually arrested for theft “over $500.” Roberts, who lives in Bradyville, TN, reportedly had 43 various items of merchandise with her when she allegedly passed all points of payment without making a purchase on Sunday afternoon at 3.
The 55-year old suspect is due in court in the near future, although an exact date has not been set. We did confirm that she made bond on Monday morning and is currently free.
