A Cookeville woman has been cited for shoplifting beer from a local grocery store. Police say 30-year-old Tara Ashley House of Bradley Drive purchased two 24-ounce beers from the Hills IGA store on Washington Avenue, but also allegedly tried to hide three more beers inside her purse. And because the purse was used in the commission of that crime, police also searched it and reported finding two syringes in a make-up bag. That led to an additional citation for possessing drug paraphernalia. House was also told not to be back on the store property.
