Forgetting How Much You Have Stolen

Several shoplifting citations have been issued by Cookeville police this week, including a case in which the suspects had stolen so many things from so many places that they couldn't remember it all. That case came to conclusion at the Sears store where 18-year-old Kayla Rockwell and 19-year-old Joshua Jonathon Harper of Crossville -- and another teenager, who was not identified because she's a juvenile -- were arrested. Police say an employee of Kohl's Department store had seen the three shoplifting and had been able to track their vehicle to Sears, where one of the suspects was inside. Police say a search of the car turned up clothing and jewelry that had been stolen from both stores. In addition, the shoes that each subject was wearing were found to be stolen from Kohl's, and several hundred dollars worth of clothing from other stores was also found inside the vehicle. In other cases, 22-year-old Colin Wade Hurd of Algood was cited for allegedly stealing a stereo cable from Walmart, and 18-year-old Jacob Scott Reneau of Byrdstown was arrested for allegedly stealing Drano from Tractor Supply.
