Local Sam's Club Victim of Shoplifting Ring
Cookeville police say their criminal investigation division is assisting what's called the Asset Protection Division of Sam's Club in investigating a shoplifting ring targeting Sam's Club stores around the area. That division sent a bulletin to the Cookeville store advising them to be on the lookout for the suspects, and local employees reviewed security video and determined that they had, in fact, been victimized by the ring, which had taken at least 19 movies and merchandise altogether valued at more than $2,500. The thieves apparently hit the Cookeville store back on June 12 at 2:44 pm.
