Overton County Men Charged With Theft

A February 1st court date has been set for two Overton County residents accused of trying to return stolen merchandise to the Algood Walmart for a refund. 41-year-old Russell Allen Cox and 30-year-old Jason N. Goolsby of Hilham were arrested after an investigation by Algood police. Authorities say the two men went to the Algood store on January 12th, took a vacuum cleaner and a 10-piece cookware set -- and walked out of the store without paying. They then allegedly returned the next day and tried to get a refund for the items. They also had reportedly tried and failed to return the items for a refund at the Cookeville Walmart.
