Employee Charged With Stealing

A former employee of the Lowe's store in Cookeville is facing charges of theft. Police say 21-year-old Justyn Edward Kavanagh of Cookeville is accused of stealing money out of a store cash register. An investigation by the business and by Cookeville police Detective Tim Terry reportedly turned up more than a thousand dollars than had gone missing. Authorities allege that Kavanagh took the money, $100 at a time, on several occasions beginning in January. His arrest came just a week after a cashier at Walmart was charged in a similar incident.
