Serial Shoplifter Arrested Again

A woman, who has been cited by police in the past for shoplifting, has now been jailed on charges of felony theft. 26-year-old Brandy Nichole Reed of Bunker Hill Road in Cookeville was arrested over the weekend after she allegedly tried to steal more than a thousand dollars worth of jewelry from the JC Penney store. Police say Reed was caught by store security trying to take $1,130 worth of necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, and watches. Reed had been arrested earlier this month after she allegedly admitted to stealing two packs of cigarettes from the Discount Tobacco store on Willow Avenue. Last December, she was accused of ripping open several perfume and cologne sets at the Belk store on W. Jackson St. She'll be in court on the latest charge later this month.
